Roxanne is an extremely valuable asset to our medical institution. She has written numerous stories in our referring physician newsletters and created first-class brochure copy for our service lines. We continue to work with Roxanne as much as possible and for good reason (to name just a few): Excellent knowledge of healthcare terminology, highly personable, one of the best writers I've ever worked with, within budget, excellent results - with no need to micromanage. Roxanne quickly learned our brand and branding standards and I have the ability to let Roxanne know what the project is, who to interview, and simply let her run with it. We value our relationship with Roxanne and highly recommend her services and professionalism.
