Agency Work

"I have worked with Patricia for the last 12 years on all types of projects from ad campaigns, to heart provoking non-profit fundraising videos, brochures, speech writing and beyond. Patricia's writing capabilities are endless. Our clients run the gamut from beverage companies, to non-profits and hair care lines to doctor's offices and she can nail the right voice every time. I feel comfortable having her handle the client from contact through completion. Every client finds her to be a pleasure to work with and at the end of the process leave satisfied with the final product and come back as needed for more. 
 

I can't say enough about Patricia's talent. If there is anything she can't write, I have yet to find it."

"Our agency, ACC Partners based in Rome, hired Patricia as a freelancer to help us with the U.S. launch of our feminine care product, Lubrigyn, which is a leading brand in Italy. Patricia has provided invaluable copywriting support and guidance. From brand and image ads to website copy and blogs, she has helped us find the right voice and tone that resonates with American women. She's a true professional and a pleasure to work with. Patricia comes with our highest recommendation."

"I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with Patricia. I initially hired her to work on a presentation that required someone with a great deal of skill as a copywriter, along with a strong background in marketing, an understanding of brand-- and for her creativity. I’m very happy to say she exceeded my expectations, produced on time, and was a true professional."

Copywriting & Marketing 

"For the past five years, this organization has been fortunate to have one of the most prolific copywriters and communicators in South Florida. From speeches, videos and brochures to ad campaigns, annual reports and web content, Patricia delivered the very best to this organization with substance and style, winning the hearts of donors – and a few major advertising awards in the process. Whether it was a sentence that needed tweaking or a full-blown interactive, bells-and-whistles Major Gifts presentation, Patricia stepped in and always stepped up. Her passion for the written word was rivaled only by her compassion for the thousands we serve."

Ghostwriting

“Working with Patricia on my first book has been a wonderful experience.  She exceeded my expectations in not only assisting with the writing, but offering the perfect recommendations and suggestions along the way.  Her insights and professionalism made this process exceptionally gratifying and fulfilling.  Patricia set realistic goals and schedules, kept me focused in order for me to stay on task and helped me finish something that I thought would take years to accomplish— and we did it within just a few short months.  Patricia comes with my highest recommendation!”

“Working with Patricia was a dream. She came in with a late bid to my project and knocked my socks off with her introduction, and it only got better after that. This was an extremely personal project, and she delivered what I hope she would: An inspiration. She met every deadline and stayed in close contact throughout the entire process. If you hire her, you won't be disappointed, and you can rest easy your job is in capable, professional hands. Beyond everything else, this chick's got soul. If you have a soulful project, you won't find anyone any better on Elance or anywhere else. I give her an 11 on scale of 10.”
