“You are a credit to your profession.” (Professor)

"Dori is a true professional. In the fall of 2014, she provided me with proofreading and editing services as I completed my graduate studies. Dori's communication throughout the process was excellent (from quote to delivery), and she delivered quality work at a reasonable price. In addition, she enabled my thoughts to be conveyed clearly and effectively, without ever changing the intention. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking a critical and thorough review of their work." (Student)
