Testimonials

Brittany is the best! She fact checked my essay, provided suggestions for alternate titles, cleaned up my grammar, and even helped me re-frame the piece a bit. I’m so glad I could work with her. 10/10 would do it again!
— Kate Colwell, Writer & Editor at Georgetown University Office of Advancement
Brittany is simply a nice person to work with. She is amicable, humble, emotionally intelligent, honest, and has genuine care and consideration for others.
— Michelle Chan, Vice President of Programs at Friends of the Earth
Her thoughtfulness and attention to detail are elevated by her deep knowledge of grammar allowing her to give purposeful and reliable feedback.
— Heather Ayres, Comic Book Author & Editorial Writer at Zulily
Brittany was fantastic to work with, prompt and direct. I really enjoyed discussing the story with her, and her input was invaluable in making the project much better than it was without her.
