Testimonial

Ailis was a fantastic editor and a pleasure to work with. She communicated with me regularly and clearly articulated the work ahead, the deadlines, and any expectations of me. I really can’t think of anything she could have done to improve on, in fact, working with Ailis was a great opportunity for me to reflect and improve my own process as a manager. 10 of 10 (10 being very effective) - Ailis was very organized and concise in her editing process. - Her comments added value to my work and were delivered with tact and diplomacy. - Each level of review built on the previous round and made for a fulsome edit. - In advance of her work, I received a short email advising me of what was coming through and what the next steps were. - At the end of the process, I felt that my work very much remained my work but was improved through her contributions.
