Pendley's Pro Editing Client Reviews

"Extremely Competent"

I could not recommend Heather Pendley more highly. She was extremely competent, very thorough, and uncommonly patient. In addition, she made time for me no matter how inconvenient my request for help.

And amazingly, she was less expensive

than all of her competition.

~ David Mullens, DPM, JD  

"Fine Job"

You did a fine job correcting grammar, punctuation, spelling and capitalization where needed. You were able to rephrase in many places to make it read better. You also caught some things that we missed . . . and I appreciate that. Your turn-around time was excellent. I was not kept waiting at any point.

 Heather is a gifted indexer, copyeditor, and proofreader . . . I was so impressed with her work at a previous employer that I kept her contact information and reached out to her when I accepted a [new] position. Heather quickly impressed everyone on my team and is our most trusted copyeditor. Her diligence, punctuality, reliability, and professionalism are top-notch. I cannot recommend her enough!
