    Jill has become a trusted advisor and essential part of my coaching business. She does so much more than proofreading my articles, website content and marketing materials. She puts a magic touch on everything I produce that makes it slick, round and professional. I also value her input beyond the technicalities of grammar and style, for example whether my writing needs more emotion or how it could be perceived by readers. Her response and turnaround times are also excellent.
