"Approaching Jennifer to help us out was a great decision for our business. The reports she produces for us from digital dictation are of a very high quality and always produced within the agreed time frame. She picked up the terminology and how to use our templates very quickly. Jennifer is very efficient with communication, extremely approachable and very pleasant to deal with. Her billing is very detailed and easy to follow. I highly recommend Jennifer if you need help from someone with exceptional skills and great attention to detail. Many thanks."
"I'm a raving fan of Jennifer. I've used her several times. Her ability to interpret a project is one of the most valuable skills as it reduces frustration and saves time, and the results are better. She has done projects for me that cover, grammar, spelling check, design, and brainstorming. She is the grammar queen. I've referred her to many people who need a professional PA to do any office admin, secretarial services and formatting documents, plus more. She always delivers on time, and I feel is a rare gem with the diverse skills she has."
