Summary

Owner and Editor of Lasting Impressions Editing, I provide professional editing, proofreading & writing services to clients globally. Whether an individual with a special project or a business professional needing polish on their internal/external communications, presentations, proposals or marketing copy, I help my clients bring their copy to next level readiness for presentation or publication.

Oftentimes we see our textual copy with less objectivity and through a highly focused deep line analysis and recommendation for revisions, my commitment to my clients is giving their important projects the same level of skill and attention as though my own. Professional editing is not a painful process, rather, an essential element of ensuring that the end product is highly engaging and memorable and that the message compels responsiveness from the client's targeted audience.

I also offer a full range of editing services to authors, writers, poets and other creative/illustrative professionals who need a qualified pair of objective eyes to assess where their documents need revision for compelling copy that will leave those critical first and lasting impressions every time.

Today, perhaps more than ever before, customer engagement in terms of interest and follow through is paramount and how we convey our message is critical. Oftentimes we only get one chance to deliver a convincing and lasting impression..clean, concise, fluid and substantive audience centric copy guaranteed.
