“Lesley was a joy to work with. She expertly turned assignments around quicker than we expected and with a high level of creativity and depth. At one time or another, she probably wrote or edited for well over half of our client base. She is a great talent.”

 ~ Dennis Harroun
Marketing Communications Director, PSB Integrated Marketing

“I worked with Lesley numerous times during my employment at PSB. I can't imagine working with a better copywriter. She's knowledgable about the subjects she writes about, and is willing to learn about those she doesn't know. She was always willing to discuss my clients' projects, ask questions, and the in the rarity they were unhappy with the first draft, she was always willing to take as many passes as necessary to get it right for the client. Her turnaround time is amazing!!! She is so fast, which is great when working under tight deadlines. I would highly recommend Lesley to any company in need of a copywriter, and I look forward to working with her again!”

“Lesley produces great quality work and delivers results before you even expect them. Her writing style is clear and concise. Her ability to do research and interview is also a great asset. I highly recommend her!”
