Jo is an excellent writer, proofreader and copyeditor who I call on regularly to help with project work. Her attention to detail is exceptional and I can always trust that she'll do a great job. She's a pleasure to work with.

Jo has proofread several reports for me. She makes sure she understands my style preferences and sorts out all the inconsistencies that can creep into a long document. She's also good at making small changes that make sentences clearer.
