Editors & Clients

“Kate is an incredibly clean, thoughtful writer. She has impeccable attention to detail and can adapt to the voice of the publication she writes for (in this case, the very helpful yet conversational ‘mom voice’ of Scary Mommy). Over the past several months, she has consistently turned in excellent work and has been one of my most reliable writers. I would work with Kate again in a heartbeat!”
— Karen Tietjen, former commerce editor at Scary Mommy 

“I’m not sure how I would have been able to create enough content for the site I oversaw if it hadn’t been for Kate! After the first assignment or two, it was clear she could write about any topic, and she quickly became my go-to writer. As the website’s only editor, I especially appreciated how clean and SEO-friendly her copy was. Kate would submit an article, and onto the site it went! I would hire her again in a heartbeat!”
— Amy Gurvitz, former content director at 32/7 [32/7 was an editorial/e-commerce site for working moms.]

“Kate and I have been working together for many years. As the first communications and social media coordinator at Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, she developed the voice for the organization and a strong following on social media. I continue to call on Kate in her freelance capacity to help tell the story of our organization through marketing materials, articles, and more. She is exceptional at creating clear, interesting, and concise copy … and on deadline. Collaborating with Kate on projects is a pleasure!”
— Adrienne McHargue, vice president for development and community affairs at Lollypop Farm, Humane Society of Greater Rochester

“We had a very tight deadline to meet and turned to Kate for her interview and writing expertise. She turned the project around ahead of schedule and produced a well-written and compelling piece.”
— Alice Calabrese, president and CEO of Lollypop Farm, Humane Society of Greater Rochester
