"I am a nurse who utilized Katie's editing services while completing my Bachelor's degree in nursing. Whether you need a research paper for higher level of education, letter of recommendation, scholarly article, or professional email or text, Katie is efficient, organized, and timely. I approached her with multiple requests and she was always willing to assist and offer her professional opinion. I gave her a deadline and she met that deadline, still leaving an opportunity for a final draft review. She has a special talent for revising grammar, structure, punctuation, and bibliography. I received a perfect score on my final paper submission regarding content, grammar, and paragraph structure. I would highly recommend Katie to anyone who needs help with editing!" ~ Kate S. RN, BSN

     "I am a nurse currently preparing to graduate with my Masters of Science as a Nurse Practitioner.  Katie has been a tremendous help with many projects throughout this adventure.  Katie was able to help with a document I had to submit that had many restrictions.  She was able to help clarify my thoughts and portray the message I had in mind.  This was all done in a timely manner giving me the opportunity to review her recommendations, apply them to my document, and meet my deadline.   Katie was also an excellent resource for enhancing my resume.  I was applying for nurse practitioner jobs (so intimidating!) and Katie was a lifesaver when it came to creating a resume employers couldn't resist.  She displayed my credentials, abilities, and professional accomplishments to help create an  accurate and strong portrayal of my experience.  I have been very impressed and so grateful for the knowledge and guidance Katie's been able to provide. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing assistance with any type of editing. My only regret is that I didn't contact her sooner!" ~ Gretchen M. RN, BSN, & Soon to be MSN-FNP!

     "Her clinical practice experience as an RN has been a refreshing addition to our committee, but more importantly, her ability to be concise with policy information and her knowledge of grammar has been invaluable. She fosters good working relationships, demonstrates the highest standards of professionalism, is an excellent communicator, and is dependable to edit policies and return them on time." ~ Greg Shannon RN, MSN, Staff Development Coordinator, Chair of Nursing Policy & Standards of Care at The University Toledo Medical Center

     "I've gotten to know Katie Gerken as an excellent student in my class and as an active member of the copyediting community. In discussions, she offers intelligent opinions and asks important questions on matters of word usage and editing. Her work in my advanced copyediting class through UC San Diego Extension made it clear to me that she will make a great copyeditor, and I am happy to recommend her. Katie has trained through the UCSD Extension program to take on whatever copyediting assignment comes her way. Her education and background in nursing makes her particularly able to deal with documents in the medical and scientific fields." ~ Mark Allen, Copyeditor

     "Katie helped me with an application to attend a national conference in New York City. And I was chosen to attend! She caught errors in my letter I didn't see even after many, many reviews. Thanks, Katie!" ~ Korene M., active member of United Steelworkers union & Women's Rights Activist

     "Katie is a lifetime friend, and now she's my editor too! She knows exactly what I want to say and helps me say it. Her edits just make sense and bring everything together. She's quick to respond and is always supportive. I was working on applying to school for my bachelor's degree and Katie helped me with my application and resume. Now that I'm an active student again, Katie's going to be my editor for many projects and papers to come!" ~ Alyssa E. RN, BSN student

     "Katie has been a member of the NHEG proofreading team since May 2015. She is very proficient in her work, reliable and trustworthy, and we are fortunate to have her on our team." ~Pamela Clark, Executive Director of New Heights Educational Group

     "It's a pleasure to work alongside Katie in New Heights Educational Group, a non-profit that benefits education. Katie is thorough and consistent in all her proofreading and editing work." ~Aditi Chopra, author of NRI fiction and non-fiction books
