Client Feedback

“Linda is great and knows APA and Capella standards extremely well. She was directly responsible for my maintenance of a 3.85 GPA on all of my graduate work and I strongly urge any serious graduate student to have her edit your final papers. My writing greatly improved with her help, and I could pay attention to my research without being bogged down by APA style issues.”

~ Bob Richardson, Ph.D., Senior Research Scientist, PepsiCo


“Linda has edited several professional journal articles for me, one of which was subsequently accepted for publication. The article that was accepted had been previously rejected prior to having Linda edit it.  She works quickly and competently.”

      ~ Walter Wessels, Professor of Economics


“I have had the privilege to work with Linda three times and it was a fantastic experience. Her communication skills are exceptional and her valuable feedback is beneficial and extensive. She provides suggestions and insights that are valuable for future work. Linda goes above and beyond and the work is given a new clarity and refinement with Linda’s editing.”

~ Cindy Esmail, Ph.D. candidate, Loyola University


“I know I tend to write in circles sometimes or overemphasize things, which can take away from the clarity.  Linda’s expertise is greatly appreciated.  I really appreciate her attention to detail.  If any student needs an editor, I’ll send them her way.”

     ~ Ryan James, Ph.D. candidate, George Washington University
