Recent reviews

Melynda was a pleasure to work with. Her enthusiasm for the project really shined through her writing. All her work was on time and if the instructions were not clear she proactively sought out the answers by communicating with us. Her writing did not need editing, and her tone and voice aligned well with our brand.
