    WHAT CLIENTS SAY

    Ron Cervi

    KCBS Reporter

    "I've worked with Julie many times over the last several years. I can't say enough how much help she has been. She's reliable, friendly, knowledgeable... But more than that, when she's on your side, she's a friend.
    I won't post or publish anything professionally without first going through Julie."

    Erin Hosilyk

    ROI Communications

    "Julie worked as a contract writer for me when I was the managing editor of the Barclays Global Investors intranet site. Employee profiles were featured prominently in a column that was managed almost exclusively by Julie. Her pieces were incredibly well written, clever, and captured beautifully the spirit and depth of every individual she interviewed, enabling employees to feel more connected to one another. She always met deadlines, and was a true delight to work with.. "

    "Besides being an excellent internal communications writer, who's able to create truly engaging human interest stories, Julie is also a smart, inquisitive and kind person. She's adept at speaking to a diverse range of people within the enterprise and expertly capturing their thoughts and feelings in her writing. I've witnessed her as consistently willing to speak up and add her valuable insights to a range of conversations. I highly recommend Julie.
