reviews

 
Charity is organized, easy to work with, and most of all, talented. Her abilities go far beyond writing and she does amazing things with little input. You won’t be disappointed. A true gem.
— Darius, WOVIN
I was fortunate enough to work with Charity as her editor for several blog posts she wrote for Go Overseas and was very impressed with both the quality of her writing, the creativity with which she approached her topics, and her level of communication / collaboration.

She even went above and beyond creating graphics for one of her articles (which our editorial team had never required / requested from the start) and is credited with writing our single most successful blog post in terms of social (in the top 5 in terms of overall traffic) for 2015.
— Jessie, Asana
 
Charity has been a great help to our company. She creates valuable content for our marketing purposes. She’s always equipped with words to get the message across in the best way possible and her energy is so wonderful to be around.

If you’re looking for content creation, digital marketing, or someone to develop a creative idea with, she’s your person.
— Regina, Live A Lot Chocolate
 
Charity navigated my business partner and I through a seamless, high quality website design and kick off. We truly could not have done it without her expertise and guidance. Charity makes it easy to talk about ideas, adjustments, and updates; even if you are half way across the country. Not only does Charity kill it in the design and text arena, she’s just a darn great person to work with!
— Katherine, practique
 
Charity has been incredibly helpful with growing my business. She’s kept me up to speed with social media and marketing strategies that I would otherwise not have time to do. Charity is also very fun and easy to work with.
— Giovanna, A Purified Life
 
Charity is a phenomenal content creator. Not only is she a great writer, but she quickly nails down the voice of the project and writes fluently from the brand’s perspective. I’d hire her again in a heartbeat.
— Kyle, Fin
 
Charity has been a great resource helping create content for a startup in which everybody on the team was in Japan and I was the only one writing English newsletter content and social media posts. Her personality and energy keeps you at ease and excited as you work through creating engaging and interesting content.
— John, Infotech Associates
