Happy clients

“Wordsmith is an understatement. Words are Danielle’s work but thoughtful articulation is her superpower. The ability to dive into a new-to-you brand and accurately rend the right way to position that company is an usual skill set to be sure. Danielle has that power and more. Tagline, bios, storytelling, grammar policing… Shoot, even answering weekend texts about the correct usage of ellipses. These are some of the tool in her arsenal I have come to rely on and it’s my pleasure to bring her into my client work, every time.”

— Sarah Price, The Eddy / Two Way Dialogue, Atlanta

“Danielle is a gifted editor who makes her word-challenged clients sound smart, concise and engaging. She works her magic through a recipe of editorial expertise, patience, empathy and a pinch of client mind reading. Do yourself a favor and hire her for your next project!”

— Kathy & Mike Carroll, Mike Carroll Gallery, Lana’i, Hawaii

“Danielle is a pro-active, client-centric, flexible and detail-oriented professional. She always meets or beats even impossible deadlines and conscientiously adheres to complex work orders. Her communication style is concise, and, most importantly to me, she responds to requests appropriately and in a timely fashion. Her work product is precise and well-valued by our clientele.”

— Ellen Nusbaum, Springboard Content & Publishing
