Testimonials

“My meeting Erin was truly a miracle, happening just when I was ready to search for an editor for my book. I found Erin to be a very transparent and soft-hearted human being who deeply cares, and I love her work. She is very detailed, not only with sentences, but with the punctuation as well. She really knows what she’s doing! I plan to write more, and I am sure she will be my go-to editor forever with all my upcoming books. She really has an edge in the way she writes and reframes sentences, and she recommends certain references, which is amazing. I love every bit of it. I would surely recommend her for your book. I am looking forward to working with her again very soon.”

“I had been needing somebody to edit my personal statement in order to apply to physician assistant programs, and Erin’s editing and proofreading helped me tremendously. She was able to correct all of my grammatical errors and make my essay more clear, concise, polished, and professional. The pricing for her work was amazing given both its quality and the timely manner in which she was able to return her work to me.”

Jenny Ki, Medical Scribe and Physicians Assistant Applicant
