Clients put in a Good Word

Mary proofread an essay for me and corrected punctuation I had missed. She also caught a reference error I had totally overlooked. She was easy to reach when I needed her. I will definitely use her again.

I had Mary review my blog content. She is thorough, and when she returned my work, Mary gave me tips that I use now to avoid several comma and spacing errors. She knows a lot…Great job!

I was able to send out a Christmas letter this year at the last minute because I asked Mary for help. She fixed my hurried mistakes and formatted it to fit on one page of the stationary. Made spirits bright!
