If you are looking for resume and career coaching testimonials, please read the scrolling testimonials in the widget at the bottom of the page.
The testimonials listed below include a variety of writing, teaching, and freelance projects. They offer you a bit of insight into how others felt about working with me during various freelance projects outside the realm of career development.
Although you are hiring me for coaching and career development, my reliability, work quality, writing skills, and communication will play a major part in the success of our time together. I recognize the difficulty of hiring people remotely, and I want you to be able to make an informed decision based on the experience of other customers.
Editing Family Memoir
“I cannot express the gratitude I feel for the excellence and professionalism shown me during the recent development of a manuscript. Penny was in tune with the flavor, the style, and the nature of the project, along with being sensitive to the urgency to get it finalized. She did not hesitate to ask questions to better understand the where, why, and what for involved. She openly made recommendations but did not force them into the project. Her recommendations came with explanations and points to consider. She was courteous and very prompt in her turnaround. I thank her for every part she played in the development and completion of this project. ” Mona R, Texas

WriteCraft Online Workshop
“This is the class to take for writers who want to offer photographs when they query a magazine. Look, I know most of us are writers, not photographers but, in today’s market, it’s just smart to offer what editors want–and they want photographs. That’s why I decided to add a new skill to my resume, and this course is geared to writers.
The course is divided into weekly modules, and I learned something valuable each week. I saved all the course material, so I can check back later when I need to refresh my memory.
Best of all, I got great personal feedback. Penny’s comments helped me see where I could improve my photographs. I thought the comments were worth as much as the lessons themselves.” K.R. (Tucson, AZ)
