Chris Marchio

“We needed a business plan to help us get funding for our start-up 3D printing/rapid prototyping and manufacturing company. Julie quickly learned about our industry and helped us write, assemble and refine a 100+-page business plan. She turned the project around efficiently, and we got the funding. She did an awesome job and provided a solid base for our working business plan.”

Julie helped us assemble, write, edit and format a 40-page, graphics-rich proposal that helped us win the contract to run the tennis program at a local municipality. She quickly learned about our business, asked good questions, was friendly and pleasant to work with, and helped us meet a tight deadline.

William Smith, President and CEO
Enscicon Corporation

“Dear Julie – You are BRILLIANT! Your edits are excellent. I read the first version and it seemed as if that’s what I wrote in the first place—your cuts still left the essence of the narrative. Reading through the highlighted version is also instructive—I can learn how to make my own prose more compact by your example.

Rachel MacFarlane, General Manager
East European Folklife Center

“I just read all the edits and the style sheet. I am very happy with the results. My stories have more feel and color. I would not change anything. Yes, I will definitely use you again! You do great work”

Val Williams
Executive Leadership Consultant and Master Certified Coach

“Julie, your edits are so helpful and concise. You’ve nailed so many inconsistencies I was blind to AND…helping the recipes make more sense to the would-be cooks. I believe I’ve integrated 95% of your edits. It is much better for it. It was such a thorough, helpful, helpful edit for me. I can’t thank you enough.”

Various Projects

“Over the past dozen or more years, I’ve appreciated being able to delegate a number of challenging projects to Julie—always with excellent results. Projects have ranged from marketing communications for a major conference, to process documentation and procedures, to upgrading and then maintaining a busy Web site, to helping produce numerous publications, some of them quite complex. She writes and edits beautifully and efficiently, has a good eye for how text should appear on a page, and has saved me a great deal of time.”

Mary Johnson, Vice President
Johnson Consulting

Writing and Editing – Nonprofit Newsletter

“I read the latest Kef Times cover-to-cover the moment it arrived. The interviews were fascinating—Julie, I especially like how you ask open-ended questions that let Joe and Polly be expansive, and yet guide them gently into relevance to EEFC. And the blurbs from Barbara as board liaison, Julie as editor, and the story about the upcoming CD were fantastic. In short, our newsletter stands out beautifully against the plethora of non-profit newsletters I get. Thanks for all your hard work!”

Former Board Member, East European Folklife Center
Commenting on Kef Times

“Julie, I’ll mention now (again) because it’s on my mind, how much I love your writing style and content. This issue of Kef Times reads beautifully, as usual. Your article about Ruth and Christos is lovely, and your edits to Leslie’s article were excellent, too . . . Our community is really lucky to have you in this role.”

Margaret Loomis
Former Board Member, East European Folklife Center

Technical Manual Preparation

“Julie wrote a technical manual for the Arctic Sun 5000. In order to complete this task, it was necessary for her to observe all of the technical processes involved in the maintenance and repair of the machine. I was astounded at how quickly she was able to learn the processes after just being shown once and put together a product that we were very happy with.”click to read case study

Annual Report

“Thanks for everything JULIE!!!”

Megan Castle, then Director of Communications
Colorado Governor’s Energy Office

“Thanks for all of the EXTRA things you did to make my work easier. I definitely appreciate it! It is such a treat for me to work with someone who can actually provide decent materials—I’m used to much worse in that area. I’m afraid professionalism for me seems like a thing of the past with all of the craziness lately! I would definitely recommend your services to any of my clients who need help with content preparation. Unfortunately, most of them think they can write.

“I am extremely impressed with your journalistic and professional input to the article. Captured just about everything and more. . . . it is an excellent piece.”

“I have just finished reading an advance copy of “Listening to Each Other: Intergenerational Project Links Elders, College Students, Youngsters.” You have recorded a superb story. I got goose bumps reading it. It is such a neat project and you captured, better than I could, the significance of the activity. It is a first-rate account of the essence of the undertaking. I can use the article as a teaching tool in future classes. I am sure the students and the campus in general will enjoy the story as much as I did this morning. Mil gracias
