Barbara has been an invaluable marketing resource to me. As an attorney, I trade on integrity and the written word, yet Barbara wrote a true-to-life bio of myself and my firm that even I could not write. She has the knowledge of marketing and human nature, and puts in the time to fully understand her client and their goals, to produce textual product that will hit home. When I meet potential clients, on the street, at networking events, at a party, or anywhere, I always tell them, as I hand them my card: “check out my website” – because I know that they will be reading Barbara’s words. Because of Barbara, I get clients.
Daniel O’Connell, Attorney-at-Law
“Barbara provides great work with minimal or even poor direction. She’s great at conducting her own research to generate quality content. Barbara works quickly and always hits her deadlines. Her writing is clear, concise, and customer friendly. Barbara is also easy to work with and always has a good attitude. For the type of work I use her (corporate customer-oriented communications), I recommend her easily.”
—Sean Malroy, Marketing Project Manager, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E)
Barbara’s cool intelligence and quick grasp of the big picture were quickly apparent to me when we worked together on aspects of the New College website, whose Humanities School content I managed and mostly wrote. Since that time I’ve gained additional appreciation for her versatility and rapid uptake in IT, clean energy, and other areas in which we both work as writers and editors. Barbara’s is a powerful intellect in which technical-logical thinking is reinforced by intuitive pattern recognition and a warm, compassionate heart.
