"Heather was critical in helping our team complete three large baseline environmental studies' reports for a major mine in north-central BC. She was able to review and edit our 150 to 300 page documents in record time, helping to maintain consistency within and across the three documents. Her review for grammar, clarity and style were very helpful in reducing my workload and creating a readable document."

"We have been using Heather’s extraordinary writing skills for several years now to better position our company in the Environmental Engineering field. First, working on technical writing assignments for periodicals, and more recently for style and grammar reviews of our engineering reports. Allowing my engineering team to focus on technical content more than grammar has allowed us to be more efficient and has freed up my time to focus more on technical review rather than rewriting reports for style. I strongly recommend Heather for any technical writing assignment."
