Zoe Krylova

Lucie is smart, hard working & positive. She has a great mind for marketing, writing, research, SEO, and social media. She knows how to carry out a plan with grace. I had the pleasure of working with her through a busy holiday season and she showed professional leadership & expertise. She is someone you can trust to work independently, but is also a terrific team player. She accomplished a lot in a short period of time and was always willing to help. I would love to work with her again someday.

To whom it may concern, The impact that Ms. Hanes had on our company was astounding. She single-handedly overhauled our website, optimizing pages for search engines and driving more traffic and thus more business to our page. Lucie also spearheaded an aggressive social media campaign for the holidays, writing content that engaged customers during our busiest season. Ms. Hanes has an incomparable work ethic, is well organized and would be an asset to any organization.

Lucie Hanes is one of my top freelance writers. She is my go-to writer for a wide variety of assignments—everything from newsworthy issues to first-person essays. Her contributions have been well-received by our readers and among our most popular stories. Her research is always exhaustive, and she is consistently on deadline. She responds well to constructive criticism and always strives to produce the best possible stories. I offer my highest recommendations for Lucie Hanes.

Some of the best hiking, bac

I prefer working with small teams because they allow for more personal interactions and relationships. I like to implement my own creative spirit, but can work with both flexibility and rigidity when it comes to content and delivery.
