Here’s what a coworker had to say!

“Please allow me to recommend Rebekah Tussing wholeheartedly. She has been my line editor for several years, and I can personally attest to the fact that her work is impeccable. She is highly skilled in editing, writing, and rewriting, and is exceptionally well-organized, efficient, self-motivated, and absolutely reliable as to meeting her deadlines. Further, she is attentive to detail and nuance, with an innate understanding of language and how to make words shine on the page, whether she is writing from scratch or enhancing other people’s communications. Aside from Rebekah’s many skills, her personal ethics, integrity, and discretion are of the highest standards. I have worked in many corporate jobs over the course of my career, and there are only a handful of people I have met along the way to whom I would give this kind of endorsement. I have no reservations at all about giving this one to Rebekah.” –Jane Haertel, Freelance Writer and Editor

I can edit Word documents using the Track Changes feature (on which I am willing to train clients). I am willing to mark up PDFs. I do not accept other document types at this time.
