TESTIMONIALS

"I didn't quite know what I was looking for, I just knew I wanted to write. Jennifer met me where I was and planned our sessions to help move me forward. I initially signed up for 8 weeks, and I plan on signing up for more in the future. With her guidance and positive probing, I found a joy in writing that I had been missing. No matter what stage of writing you are in, Jennifer will help you get where you are going." - Kristin Heck Sajadi 

"Jen introduced me to a newfound love, a love of writing, which has changed my life for the better. In my past position one of my greatest weaknesses was copywriting. I often struggled with my composition, editing techniques, and sentence structure. It was defeating to be stressed with something that seemed so elementary. At that time I worked for a global childcare company running their social media platforms and a big part of my position was copywriting. With the help of my previous employer I was introduced to a writing coach; that coach was Jen. Jen worked with me for over a month to not only help me tackle this tussle with tips and tricks on how to edit and write for social, she also helped me overcome my emotional obstacles. She introduced journaling into my life, and I still to this day write in it every morning. She is patient, listens to her clients, offers great feedback, issues difficult homework (which I’ve saved because it was so resourceful) and is very thorough in her responses. She even likes Amos Lee, which is a big win in my book! If you are looking for ways to sharpen your writing skills, need help with a certain area in editing, or just want to improve your overall skills Jen is the perfect person to help. Thanks Jen for a great month!" - Alyssa Defendi
