Client Praise


I will be hiring Dakota again on my next project! She communicated well throughout the entire process and delivered on time. Her suggestions were clear and professional and she was available to answer my many questions. Her input saved me from the need for future edits—such a valuable investment!

WOW! I wrote my first book, and had no idea how to go about editing it, and knew I needed help! Dakota took the time to go into so much detail and truly helped me not only find my voice and make this book authentically me, but also is an absolute expert in the rules and formatting to make my book professional and sellable! I am so grateful for her care, knowledge and support—she over delivers and then some! Highly recommend her to anyone who is on their first, or thirty-first, book!

The process of finding an editor for a writer is one of the most vulnerable and intimate moments of the entire writing process. If you are fortunate enough to find your perfect match, which I have with Dakota, it is truly an incredible experience.

I was referred to Dakota by another writing colleague who said she was an incredible editor and an incredible human being; I was not disappointed. Her gentle approach, coupled with her expertise with the written word, has made for an enjoyable process.

Dakota’s approach has offered feedback that has helped my novel and several other works become the best possible version of themselves; she has the innate sense to capture the essence of what I am trying to convey. Additionally, she is timely, professional, competitive, and a beautiful person.

My personal experience with Dakota has been nothing but extremely positive and has become someone I trust with my work implicitly. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Working with Dakota has been an incredibly smooth process from beginning to end! Dakota brought both creative ideas and sharp editing skills to the table. She made it possible for me to have my first article published online at – with my first submission. Without her I know I would not have been able to have achieve this goal so quickly. I would definitely recommend Dakota to anyone and everyone looking for engaging content and professional editing.

~ Alana Ruoso, Success Coach for Designers, Creatives & Professionals

A dream to work with! I came to Dakota in a pinch for an article that was due to publish the next day. Not only did she rush to save the day, her extreme attention to detail found things that I never would have – even if I had read the piece 100 times. She has an incredible eye for what she does. I couldn’t be happier!

Dakota helped me edit web copy for the Home and About pages on my brand new website. Since these are high attention areas, I knew it was important for the copy to represent my brand in the best way. Dakota’s input was awesome!

The changes she suggested improved the clarity and sentence structure of the writing for an overall more professional feel. She further strengthened the concepts that I introduced and helped me emphasize the parts that deserved more attention. She did all of this while maintaining the fun and friendly voice that I want to portray in my brand.
