Testimonials like this one:
"Nancy Johanson is one of the most creative and
dedicated communications professionals that I have ever had the
opportunity to work with. While I was the CEO of a medical information
company, Nancy was my "right hand partner" in formulating
communications with our customers and business partners . . . a very
challenging task, in light of the esoteric terminology involved in a
fashion that grabs the reader's attention and effectively engages them in
the content. This comes from both her considerable depth of
creative talent and her empathy for people and concern that they receive
the very best of her efforts. Nancy's attention to detail and
commitment to meeting deadlines are also valuable assets. I highly
recommend her as a top level professional."

my ability and according to the standards set by the Editorial Freelancers Association.
