Testimonials

 
Sarah MoteIt’s difficult enough in this content-marketing world to find folks who can just write. But to get the job really done, to really drive folks to your website, you need someone who can embody your brand, tell a story, communicate insights and do all of that while building awareness of your brand. That person is Kris. She’s not only competent, which is hard enough to come by, she’s also weaves compelling, brand-focused stories.Sarah Mote, Marketing Director, UMKC Innovation Center
 
 

V IpriKristen has proven herself repeatedly as a masterful editor and a nimble writer, able to extract the value and intent of words, then simplify those words to add real purpose to any document. Rarely have I encountered a more valuable writer – and a more genuine person – in my many years of business. I highly recommend Kristen with the utmost confidence.V. Ipri, Manager, The Confident Copywriter (LinkedIn group)
 
 

Midge FlinnA potential client contacted me and another quilter with a project. After reviewing my site she told me my website was extremely helpful and that she was so impressed with my site and content that she chose me on the spot. Without Kristen’s help developing the content, I may not have won this wonderful lady as a client. Thank you, Kristen, for your help and guidance. Midge Flinn, Owner, Midge’s Stitches
 
 

Angela SkurtuKristen has helped me a great deal. A year ago, I was asked by an editor to write a book. I never thought I could do such a big task. After meeting with Kristen, she helped me break down the project and believe in myself and my ability to do this. Thanks to her, I now have a book coming out in March. I truly see her as a mentor in the field of writing. Thank you so much for all the help and encouragement you provided me!Angela Skurtu, M.
