Julie is an eagle-eyed editor who spots problems of grammar, syntax, logic, and flow. She edits with the reader in mind, calling out issues that confuse or are unclear. In addition to being efficient and highly professional, she's really fast! I look forward to working with her in the future.

Julie did a thorough job and in some cases went above and beyond the copy editing I hired her for. She helped me to understand several errors I was a repeat offender with in a timely and compassionate manner. It was wonderful to have her professional eyes on my project and she gave me much to consider. Thank you Julie and I hope to be able to work with you again in the future!

I've worked with Miss Julie before, and I love working with her. She gives very clear insights into the work and is really good at building me up before she points out some flaws in my pieces. Loved working with her and can't wait to do so again!
