Testimonials

“Martha’s talents as a writer and researcher are showcased in A Hospital for Maine: The History of Maine Medical Center. The MMC family takes great pride in this book, and I am particularly proud that it came to fruition on my watch. John F. Kennedy said that history has no present, only the past rushing into the future. Thanks to Martha, the rush of events and chain of individuals leading to this moment on Bramhall Hill and beyond have been captured for future generations. The book’s also a great read.”

—Richard W. Petersen
President and Chief Executive Officer, Maine Medical Center

“Martha is exactly what we were looking for in a copywriter. She sat down with us to learn about our business in the beginning and has been off and running ever since, picking up every project we send her. She always knows how to get our point across. She writes great copy—but she’s also efficient, responsive and a joy to work with. We feel very fortunate to have her on our team.”

We have worked with her for a number of years, and she has never failed to deliver insightful, timely, relevant, and clever material for our print, radio, and Internet advertising. She is an ever flowing spring of unique ideas. It’s a bonus that she can both write and narrate our TV and radio advertising. She is, very much, the voice of Chilton’s.”

“Martha quickly got up to speed with our construction terminology and really understands our business. She’s an exceptional listener and adept at condensing a thought that takes me two paragraphs to express into one well-formed sentence that sounds like a contractor. She is prompt, efficient, and meticulous in the back-and-forth it sometimes takes to fine-tune our message. Always ready to jump in and help, she is a delight to work with.”

—Mike Ouellet

“When Martha works with my clients on their writing needs, the project is always smoother and more enjoyable, and the end product more effective. My clients are always grateful to have their intentions unpacked and thoughts expressed in the right words. Martha asks questions that reveal what’s important, writing copy that speaks directly to the audience and rewards them—often with humor—for investing their time. She’s also one of the most clever headline and tagline writers I know. Plus, she works with the impressive speed of a seasoned professional. I highly recommend her.”

—Wendy Clark
Creative Director/Designer, Wendy Clark Design

“I’ve relied on Martha for voiceovers for years. She combines a warm, authoritative delivery with the “just right” interpretation of copy that comes from also being an excellent writer. She hits deadlines, works hard, and respects your time. One caveat: She’s a perfectionist, so don’t hire her unless you want it done right.”
