"Adding Cindy as our final set of eyes before we go to press has improved the quality and accuracy of the Costco Connection magazine immensely. She is thorough, extremely detail-oriented, and on-time."

Cindy’s editing skills have made a tremendous impact to our survey products. Her ability to help us in our testing process has been critical to us delivering a great product to our client. Since she’s been working with us, our quality of final product has increased tremendously and we’ve been able to condense our delivery schedule with her help. Cindy has never missed a deadline, even when they are tight, and usually delivers ahead of schedule. She is a valuable part of our team and I’m very thankful we found her."
