What Clients Are Saying

B. Wells, MI

"I reached out to Jillian for help editing my masters thesis on the use of Social Justice Art Therapy with a survivor of childhood and domestic violence. Not only did Jillian send wise and thorough feedback remarkably fast, but she was instrumental in improving the tone, flow, consistency, and professionalism of my dissertation. 

"I was deeply passionate about the subject and all the research and field work I had to contribute, but my paper was hundreds of pages longer than the requirement. Condensing the content was crucial to delivering a dynamic and engaging piece of writing, but I couldn’t see what needed to be cut out. Jillian had no problem pulling out the best parts of my material and condensing it into fewer, more compelling themes. 

"She noted grammatical errors, clarified language, restructured sentences, reorganized chapters, asked important questions to prompt further articulation of my insights, and overall inspired me to complete a document I took great pride in. 

"Jillian is very skilled at what she does and it was a privilege to work with her. I recommend her for any project without any hesitation."

R. Brewer, TX

"Jillian is well versed in literature and gives clear instructions and tips on how to improve a manuscript. I'm glad I decided to work with her and am very pleased with the finished product. Her guidance helped my project reach its full potential."

R. Norris, TX

"Jillian is completely knowledgeable and helpful in all areas. Best of all, she does what she says she'll do, when she says she'll do it. Thank you, Jillian! We'll be back for more!"

W. Fletcher, GA

 "I have had the opportunity to work on a number of projects in which Ms. Smith was involved. Her computer skills and command of written language - a rare combination - made her a valuable contributor in each case. She has become a go-to person in any major project through which her skills may be utilized."
