Testimonials


Dara researched, wrote and edited several articles for an online content hub that our ad agency built for a major retail client. Dara is not only an incredibly talented writer, but she also has an easygoing nature and professional manner that make her an absolute pleasure to work with. Her writing is well researched and well structured with impressive attention to detail. She was able to incorporate our feedback with ease and quickly turnaround a great final product. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and I truly look forward to working with Dara again in the future!

Dara is the most professional, thorough and creative writer I've ever worked with. In the variety of projects I have had the opportunity to work with her, she has exceeded expectations at every level.

At the beginning of each engagement, she immerses herself into the project to gain a comprehensive understanding of client expectations and contributes ideas to develop a better end product. She engages collaboratively and seamlessly into an organization, but also has the unique ability to manage the task at any level requested.

Working with Dara gives me complete confidence the project will be on time and beyond expectations. She's a valuable asset to my team and a true joy to work with.

I wanted to reach out and thank you for the work you performed on our behalf. I understand the tasks described were not as clearly articulated as they should have been. I also understand the very short turnaround time frames were unreasonable. Regardless of what you were faced with, you did an exceptional job.

Your writing is concise, easy to read, and well structured. My staff was highly complimentary about your easy going style and the finished product for our E&Y nomination work. Additionally, the copy you developed nearly entirely on your own and without much direction for the Vision Village, was excellent. You took the initiative to understand the context of what was required, and delivered a terrific product.

Dara has been a great resource for KBS. She is a well-versed writer with a solid business background and the ability to communicate that in a way that readers find engaging. She always goes above and beyond to build the perfect lead, creative headline or that extra bit of research to make the story worthwhile for the reader. She’s also a great interviewer and not bashful about engaging thought leaders or business executives to get a great quote.

Not only is Dara a great writer, but lots of fun to work with. Don’t contact her if you are looking for a mediocre partner. She is also bright, well rounded, creative, and diligent. And she is not afraid to collaborate to create great work product. I highly recommend her!

I appreciated Dara’s professionalism, talent and foresight. Her enthusiasm and ‘brainstorming tenacity’ is refreshing. Whenever we collaborated, I believed she had my best interests in mind with each idea and change that was made to our website. This is a security every business owner relishes.

I would highly recommend Dara for all your professional writing needs. Her passion and business acumen serve as strengths in her ability to build genuine 'like and trust' with her clients. Dara gets it -- and she gets it done right!

Our company recently used Dara's writing services to update our website content and brochures, and we could not be happier with the results. Dara was able to take our opinions throughout the process and seamlessly integrate them into the writing with a quick turnaround time between revisions. She was very easy to work with and attentive to our suggestions.

I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed working with you for HearingNews.net. Your article was fresh, exciting and complete but it's not just your writing skills. I am so impressed with your professional behavior dealing with our team and the interviewed client. I hope we have many more opportunities to work together in the future!

Dara hit a grand slam home run in helping our company put together a new brochure and update our website. Not working with a copywriter before, she made it easy to collaborate on new ideas, exceeded our objectives, and bottom line helped create a beautiful piece in print and online that will ultimately help grow sales for our company. I appreciate all her hard work and patience on this project and hope to work together again in the future.

I own and operate a graphic design/web design company. Recently, I used Dara's expert writing services on a company that I branded. I was really pleased with her writing style, professionalism, and quick turnaround. The client was extremely happy with the end result. I plan on using Dara's writing talent in the future. We are now working on a new project together, branding another company. I am really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with. So much of branding relies on the right text to convey the message to the consumer and Dara delivers that in spades.

Kim Deichmann, Owner/Graphic Designer

Dara has been great to work with over the past few years. Being a startup company, there have been a few hurdles to get over, but you would never guess that with her easygoing personality. She has given helpful input on our website and her punctuality and ability to always meet deadlines have made her a true asset to our business.

Erin Nelson, Operations Manager

Simply put, my e-books would not exist without Dara’s interviewing, researching, and writing skills. I was really pleased with the way they turned out: Dara captured the spirit and tone I had in mind, is great with humor and speaking in a ‘male’ voice… and always demands you give feedback to her straight, because she is entirely about making the final product reflect what you want, matching your vision and vibe. Plus, her turnaround time is fantastic!
