Noemi worked as a copy writer with me on a curriculum. She is a gem. We had a short turn around time and I was impressed with the quality of copy and research with the time parameters, especially for such a reasonable charge. I would definitely ask her to join me on another project and would recommend her to others.
Noemi is an excellent editor! As I work through her suggested edits my troubled paragraphs change from run-on-sentences, vague unsubstantiated and confusing, to actually looking pretty good. To the essay I would like it to be. Noemi offers professional editing and experienced feedback. She will help you find your way in the thicket to a piece of writing that is clear and concise with offering also knowledge of standard practices in grammar, syntax, and journalism. She also helps you learn to be a better writer by leaving clear and concise comments. She is in this way a teacher as well. I highly recommend her. A good editor is a beautiful thing!
I needed a manuscript read with quick turnaround and she was able to deliver, quickly. Was a pleasure to work with.
