I have consulted Joanne on several projects over the years, both personal and professional. Most recently, Joanne helped me to great success with my CV and cover letter which landed me my current position at a Seattle nonprofit. Said organization was and is essentially my dream job, and I have no doubt that Joanne played a huge part in my attaining this goal.
Joanne is a consummate professional; she is precise and critical, but also thoughtful and supportive. In addition to her great skill as an editor and consultant, she’s also nothing short of a pleasure to work with.

I came to Joanne at the start of a non-traditional search in the sense that I already held a full time position but was looking to relocate. I had insecurities such as searching in an unfamiliar area and having less than a year in my current role. Luckily for me, Joanne was a local in the area I was searching in and was able to give me advice on where to broaden my search. Actually, I lucked out on a lot with Joanne. She instantly made me feel comfortable in telling her my story, what I was looking for, and she had a Google Doc set up for our call (which saved me from frantically writing down notes). I really appreciate her going through things with me line by line and explained the significance of each part. If I had her help fresh out of graduate school I think it would have made a world of a difference in my current situation. This is why I would highly recommend her for anyone starting their search!

I was drowning under my Master’s application essays and was beginning to panic as the deadline approached. That changed when I started working with Joanne. Her feedback was speedy, concise, and ultimately helped me clearly convey exactly what I wanted to get across to admissions. I’ve been accepted to my first-choice program, and I owe much of that success to Joanne’s excellent editing skills.

I worked with Joanne to revise my personal statement and CV for graduate school, and the results were a success; I was admitted to my first choice school and Art History program in London, UK.
Overall impression: Joanne helped with editing my statement and curriculum vitae over my admissions process. I appreciated her attention to detail as well as her eagerness to help even at the last minute when the clock was ticking closer to my deadline. I had never actually had the opportunity to write a CV in my professional career so I was the most nervous about that portion. Despite my second guessing, Joanne knew how to best represent my experience in the field, and loved all of her suggestions for laying out the details. I would highly recommend Joanne to anyone I know and would encourage you to do the same.
