Patricia has an eye for detail and an unyielding dedication to quality. She edits at the paragraph, sentence, clause, and syllable level. She gives the same attention to the end notes as she does to the headline. At the same time, she can take the 30,000-foot view of a piece of writing, taking into account purpose and audience to ensure it has the biggest possible impact.
Earlier this year, I needed to transform my 15 year old, heavily technical resume, into a resume that was easily understandable, relevant to non-technical jobs, and highlighted my soft skills instead of my technical job experience. It was a daunting task—until Patricia came to the rescue, that is. What a relief! Patricia's love of language, her ability to communicate precisely and concisely, and her understanding of my needs and goals, were a tremendous help in creating a functional resume I was proud of. I'm grateful for Patricia's insights and suggestions, as well as her enthusiasm and encouragement throughout the project, making the experience actually enjoyable. And I landed a job! Thank you, Patricia!
Patricia has an incredible ability to see the forest AND the trees—at the same time. She’ll point out all those little continuity errors that inevitably pop up in a long manuscript. She’ll also let you know how your themes successfully develop (or don’t) over an entire plot arc. She can tell you if you’re using commas wrong, identify your writing ticks, remind you that your Aunt Edith in Chapter 12 was your Aunt Evelyn in chapter 2, and do so in a way that inspires you to write more and better. Just hire her!
