numerous projects, Jill is one of the most professional and enthusiastic writers & editors I have ever worked with. I
am very impressed with her prompt response, active engagement to come up with creative solutions and ability to manage projects
without supervision. She has effective communication skills and always seeks to clarify instructions. Jill even volunteered
to work over the weekend in order to meet my launch date. I am looking forward to working with Jill on future projects and
recommend her whole-heartedly."
