A Few Snippets of Praise

“We partner with Alicia-Joy when we need thorough editing and proofreading work. It is essential our reports, case studies, and online documents meet a high standard of accuracy. Alicia-Joy helps us reach that standard. She is a pleasure to work with and always does an outstanding job.’ – Kevin Osborne, CEO MeWe360

“Alicia, your writing course was timely and extremely relevant to me. There is so much information on the internet, that I’d started getting overwhelmed and not sure what direction to take. What I loved most about the course, was the way you broke down the different writing styles. I appreciated the various resources you so generously gave us on where and how we can market our services. Going forward with my business, I now feel confident about the future because I have more clarity. I wish I had done this course earlier, It would have saved me a lot of time that I’ve wasted trying to figure out stuff. Thanks Again.”Joyce Fiodembo. International Nurse Support
