What Clients Say...

I’ve worked with Joanne for almost 10 years. She is a gifted writer and editor – a technical powerhouse who can also find just the right words to make complex, intimidating medical concepts accessible and engaging. 

And Joanne is a true professional – never misses a deadline, is a pleasure to work with, and is eager to contribute to the team in any way she can.

Joanne is a listener. As someone who doesn’t have a ton of time to devote to social media, I wanted to present a more coordinated effort on Instagram but wasn’t sure how to go about it.


She listened to my needs and goals and came up with a plan that worked beautifully. I enjoy working with Joanne and highly recommend her services.
