"I am pleased to recommend Carrie for all your writing needs. I contracted with Carrie to write two feature articles for our university's magazine, Steps, and was very satisfied with the results and the interaction between us. One article was a faculty profile in which she needed to interview the professor and emphasize his new role as Director of Educational Equity and race relations. The professor was very pleased with her interviewing manner, and her interviewing skills were demonstrated in the finished article. I was very pleased with the final piece, as it covered all the angles I had asked for and was written sensitively in a lively prose that our readers enjoyed.
The second article was very complex, as it dealt with different partnerships the university has created with a number of school districts. I asked Carrie to focus on the student impact of these partnerships. She made the contacts, scheduled the appointments, and met face-to-face with the school administrators and students. The result was an in-depth approach to the subject, and a welcoming human element revealed through her candid interviews with the students. Carrie was able to enliven a potentially dry subject, and she also obtained great quotes from the students.
I was also very impressed with Carrie's professional manner and organizational skills. Once we had established the scope of the project, she took control and kept me informed all along the way. I was thrilled that she made sure we had a "stress free" arrangement, and that she was able to deliver these two complex articles on time."
