We have had the pleasure of working with Kaarina both as a client of ours and as a subcontractor to us. Kaarina’s easy and approachable manner made for a seamless transition from client to collaborator. Her ability to capture ideas and expand thoughts on paper and in-session have made her an invaluable contributor, not only to our success but to our clients’ success. Our confidence in Kaarina’s use of language to convey intangible concepts and complex business environments has allowed us to focus our expertise where we need to, knowing that she is using her talents to support our work.

“”Working with Kaarina makes my life so much easier. Her writing is incredibly strong and she knows how to tailor the voice to meet client needs. Her executive experience makes her a powerful resource, she can figure out exactly what is needed for any given assignment. When I work with her, I know I’m working with someone I can trust. She meets her deadlines, is responsive, communicates clearly and is a personal gem.”

“I had been working on my novel Brendan’s Way for over three years before I hired Kaarina to do a line edit. Her approach was perfect for me as a writer: she was positive and encouraging, while still clearly describing the issues she found and possible approaches to addressing them. She provided very specific and actionable comments, which made it clear that she had fully engaged with the novel. As soon as I finished editing the book, I submitted it to a publisher, and they accepted it. Brendan’s Way is now in print with Ottawa’s Bundoran Press, largely thanks to Kaarina’s efforts. I would hire her without hesitation for any future book-length editing projects.”

“Kaarina was a huge asset to a number of our client projects. When we had a more technical project and needed a writer that could present it to a general audience, Kaarina was our go-to partner. Kaarina’s ability to take client direction, frame complex concepts into easy-to-understand content, and produce consistently high-quality work under often very tight deadlines made her an invaluable part of our team and a direct contributor to our success in meeting client needs. I would highly recommend Kaarina and her work.”
