Why Choose Me?
As a first-time author, I wasn't sure what to expect from the very necessary service of proofreading prior to my book being typeset for printing. Lucie was meticulous whilst editing my manuscript. She explained the tools she would use and added a tracker feature so that I could easily see the suggested changes in punctuation and clarity of phrasing for ease of reading. Lucie indicated that for the size of my book, approx. 30,000 words she would allow 10 days. However, it was back with me 7 days later. I did not require any further revisions. I cannot recommend her work highly enough.
"Lucie has been an invaluable support to my business over the past year and a half. Lucie connected me to the right people, developed compelling stories for my website, held me to account to ensure I am gathering the right information to make my business story persuasive. Lucie has been a constant companion to my business, someone to bounce ideas from and trustworthy. Lucie is a quietly powerful person, her knowledge is outstanding, the detail she puts into research and communication is one of the best I have seen. Thank you for everything you have done and are doing for me and with me.

"Lucie efficiently revised my CV: she gave it a professional look and made my academic as well as my personal assets stand out. Moreover, she is a wonderful coach in my job application procedures. She connected me to someone from a company that I could imagine myself working for and this person forwarded my CV internally to the right department. Lucie advised me on how to write an effective motivation letter. She still helps me to keep an eye on achieving my (personal) goals. If you are looking for someone who is good at organizing, can listen well and is supportive, I am certain you will find a reliable partner in Lucie."

"I have hired Lucie for editing and writing assignments in English ranging from course transcriptions to website content for the last few years. Her writing style is precise and engaging. Our highly educated audience mostly consists of non-native speakers of English who are learning complex new concepts in global mobility for HR, relocation and Comp & Ben specialists. They value accuracy and clarity. She has translated reports and promotional texts for us from Dutch to English as well. I appreciate how she also provides marketing advice when suitable and raises questions from a client's perspective before we finalise messages to our current and prospective clients.

Lucie is a powerhouse! I met Lucie several years ago when I volunteered for The World in Your Classroom in The Hague, which Lucie coordinated. As volunteers Lucie made us feel welcome, understood and so valued for the experiences we shared with Dutch students. Because of Lucie's program management, we got as much out of the experience as the students. Working with Lucie was always a delight - she's brilliant, creative, organized, and perfectly direct. I see why she seems able to accomplish so much in the same # of hours the rest of us get. Plus, her warm spirit and generosity shine through in every interaction.
I contacted Lucie for PR services to support and promote the work of our non-profit (The Period Place) which runs an annual summit every May 28th about the advocacy against period poverty, providing education on menstrual hygiene management and supporting women and girls undergoing period poverty. Lucie was able to write our message clearly such that it attracted media attention. Both television and print media were excited to publish our story. The impact and exposure have helped more people become aware of our services and the support that we provide for our focus community. I would recommend Lucie any time for PR services because she writes very compelling briefs and sources for the right platforms for stories.
