Senior Editor, Tribune Brand Publishing, Chicago
I have worked with Lisa for many years, hiring her both as a full-time staff member and a freelancer. She is a highly skilled writer, editor, and publication manager with a broad knowledge base and vast experience. Her copy is pristine, lively, and always on time. Her editing is impeccable, and she works very well with other writers, designers and with clients. In addition to having a keen eye for design, she also has a clear understanding for editorial layout, grasping the essence of what makes a design interesting and readable.

Lisa has one of the most well-rounded skill sets of any journalist I know. She's equally adept at turning a phrase, editing writers, managing copy and production flow, designing layouts and working with printers to create the final product. She leveraged her skills to improve the magazine journalism program at Columbia, produce the student magazine, and train future journalists. It's rare to find this combination of skills in one person. All of her work is done with fine attention to detail and a professional demeanor.
VP, GoalFace; formerly President, VG Media Group
As President of VG Media Group, a new media strategy company, I hired Lisa to help refine and streamline our marketing messages to appeal to our target customers. She was able to quickly grasp the subtleties of our product and services. She offered great suggestions and crafted effective, strong, and elegantly worded messages for our print and online marketing. Lisa is very professional, organized, reliable, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her for print, Web, and integrated marketing projects.

Lisa's skill as an editor, writer and marketing coordinator have been invaluable to me. As a busy Real Estate professional, I need help with data base management, mailings and design, including Web site content and updates. She seems to know what I want before I do. She edits my thoughts into a cohesive plan that has made marketing in this challenging environment a breeze. Lisa produces high quality results in reasonable time frames. She is very good at problem solving and keeping costs down. Her recommendations show an editor’s eye for detail and a writer’s creativity. Working on a project basis is very cost effective for me. I know she is there when I need her, and unlike having staff, I only pay for exactly what I need.
