Erika became a trusted partner and friend along the long journey of editing my 800-page book. She proved not only an excellent editor but a patient teacher as well. Erika took the time to make sure we had a well-defined scope of work and process, which helped immensely over our year-and-a-half-long project.
What most impressed me about Erika was her breadth of existing knowledge and willingness to learn all about Berkshire. The key component was an awareness of what Warren Buffett has called a circle of competence: knowing what you know and, importantly, what you don't. I could trust Erika to confidently shape my words to the intent of my thoughts, knowing all the while that she would let me know when she needed my help understanding a particular detail or concept.

“Erika has prepared exceptional professional articles, publications and done writing for me. I have found her to be a smart and proficient writer who thinks ahead of the issues and is also responsive. She makes a great addition to any executive and is a rare find with unlimited ability to freelance.”
-Howard Brodsky, Co-founder, chairman and co-CEO of CCA Global Partners
Erika is a talented, creative, and extremely resourceful writer. Two of her strengths I value most are 1) she is extremely quick without quality suffering 2) she executes projects with limited direction and only asks important clarifying questions. Erika is easy to work with and is a great contributor to our creative process and I look forward to continuing our work together.

"As a multitasking business owner, I had the inspiration to give our clients information about our industry in a relaxed yet informative manner; however, I never had the time on the never ending to-do lists. When talking with Erika, she suggested starting a blog. She became my ghost writer. After only reading a few of my own business materials, she nailed my personality and writing style. Erika took the words right out of my head and wrote the blog just as I would have. I was truly impressed!"
-Sheri Gayer, Water's Edge Salon and Spa
"Erika worked with my budding magazine writers at the University of New Hampshire, Manchester, helping them to shape their stories so they were magazine ready. She visited with my classes several times during the semester, teaching the students how to pitch to an editor, how to conduct interviews that dug deeper than a company's standard PR line, and how to craft business articles that were equally informative and entertaining. She was not just a great role model for my students, but was a trusted editor of my own article that I later penned for the magazine, and she is a gifted and talented writer. I guess it's fairly obvious that I enjoyed working with Erika."

“At the New Hampshire College & University Council we advocate for Higher Education in the state. One of the ways that we try to increase awareness of the importance our colleges and universities have in their communities is through our annual Economic Impact Report. Erika produced a very professional, informative and compelling piece that clearly showcased the impact that higher education has on New Hampshire’s economy and the workforce. Erika has always been a trusted and skilled writer whose articles and publications tell an interesting story. She is efficient and is a great asset. The NHCUC looks forward to working with her on future publications again real soon.”
-Scott Power, Director, Outreach & Communications at the New Hampshire College & University Council
