When I served as the Deputy Commissioner for the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development Abby's ability to bring together multiple stakeholders, synthesize complicated information and maintain a consistent brand presence and professionalism was integral to many of the successes that the department enjoyed. She was indispensable--she ensured that the department stayed on message, provided in-depth feedback, drafted research and white papers, and developed new program proposals. I would highly recommend Abby's work to anyone who is looking for intelligence, creativity, professionalism and integrity.

I have worked with Abby on a wide variety of projects over the years, such as annual reports, informational brochures, and websites. Besides being a talented writer, she is also a great project manager and an excellent communicator. What most impresses me about Abby is her fresh approach to every project. She has often challenged me to rethink my design concept in order to better achieve a specific project goal. Some of my favorite collaborations with Abby have been infographics, where text and graphics come together to create a more engaging message.

Abby has a unique talent for transforming dense, scientific writing into something that engages public audiences. She is diligent about preserving the integrity of the science, but in an easier to read form. Having worked with Abby on a number of different projects aimed at various audiences, I can highly recommend her to help get your message across effectively.

When I sat down to write my personal statement I knew what I wanted to say, but I was having a hard time effectively portraying my thoughts, that’s where Abby stepped in. She kept my voice, my content and my overall message while seamlessly integrating key points and making my random thoughts mean something. It was my writing, my voice only better.
When done right, the relationship between writer and editor is collaborative, confidence-building, and fun... and Word Nerd does it right. She makes my work sparkle without diluting my voice or message - I always look forward to working with her!
