Some recommendations for my work…

“I have been Jessica’s senior editor at suite101.com since she started writing for our site. She was quickly promoted from contributing writer to senior writer, and besides her interesting and well written reviews and interviews, Jessica blogs on a regular basis, successfully drawing in readers from all over the virtual world. Jessica’s ability to both meet and exceed deadlines, along with her writing talent means she will continue to have a successful career as a word-smith. I am lucky to have her on our team!”

She has drawn a large audience base in which people rely on her for informative advice and stories, which she is never short of delivering. Her professionalism in the writing field will only lead to much success in the future!”
