"Steph has been reviewing my writing for almost 5 years now, and has worked on a wide range of texts ranging from resumes and cover letters, important e-mails, and multiple drafts of my book.  Steph always catches my copious proofing errors–but more importantly they picked up on my preferred form, style, and voice very early on, and help keep me consistent while still getting my point across.  Steph goes far above and beyond the cookie-cutter proofing that software, websites, and spell check offer, and has become essential at every step of my writing process."
