“I’ve hired Nicole to write for several of the blogs my company manages, and she’s always a dream to work with. She comes up with great ideas, writes well, and always meets her deadlines. She also incorporates feedback and edits in a timely manner. I’ve worked with her both for blog posts and for ebooks, and I’d recommend her for both!” — Alexis Grant, media innovator and entrepreneur

“I’ve worked with Nicole for several years in my capacities as editor at The Write Life and senior editor at The Penny Hoarder. She’s a fantastic writer with a clear, compelling voice, and she’s able to tackle just about any subject with ease. She’s particularly adept at addressing topics related to career and personal finance with candor, compassion, and, when appropriate, wit. Nicole is reliable, always hits her deadlines, and is a pleasure to work with. I can’t recommend her highly enough, and I’d love to work with her again.” — Heather van der Hoop, editor


“I took Nicole’s freelancing class. By the end of the class, I had submitted my first pitch, had it accepted and the article published. She guided us through the process of building a freelance career, with concrete steps to get started, ongoing resources for growth and answers to wide-ranging questions. She taught one of the most informative classes I’ve taken and she did it while providing individualized information for each member of the class.” — Beth Swanson, freelance writer and journalist


“Nicole is an invaluable developmental editor. During the first pass she looked at big picture stuff. Is this scene interesting? Is it easy to understand? Is everyone acting true to their character? Did they leave the house in the underwear they were wearing a moment ago, or did I put some clothes on them and just forget to mention it? (No really, that was one of Nicole’s notes.) She’s a great second pair of eyes on my work and I can’t thank her enough.” — Alan Lastufka, multimedia content creator and entrepreneur

“Nicole’s industry knowledge was a huge resource to me when I started working as a freelance writer. As an editor, she asks the right questions to get the best results from writers and always makes a final piece better.” — Meryl Williams, writer and social media strategist
