Writing, Editing Services - Remote

“Thanks to Paul Hickman ('10), I am now in contact with about a dozen W&M grads who work in the data science field via LinkedIn. Thanks, Paul!”

“We received a TREMENDOUS response from our alumni on our request for their expertise and experience! ”

“I have helped clients to release themselves from many hampering behaviors. One that was particularly rewarding was  a client with a fear of tunnels and bridges. After just a few sessions she was able to drive across a bridge and through our local tunnels successfully.”

“I found my person using the switchboard! Thanks”

“I have had clients who have released their fears, such as one who could not drive over bridges or through tunnels without either turning back or having a panic attack (in Hampton Roads!). In 4 sessions, we rode across a bridge and through a tunnel together, and she is now running her own successful business without that hindrance of the past. What a relief!”

“After posting this offer, I was thrilled to receive a message from Julia, a Class of 2015 alumna in the D.C. area who was interested in expanding her  journalism experience through the Pulitzer Center's fellowship. She and I scheduled a phone call to discuss the program and her proposal and I encouraged her to apply. Julia's project idea impressed the selection committee and she was selected as one of our three inaugural "Beyond War" reporting fellows. In addition to connecting about her fellowship, she and I realized that we have several mutual friends in the area and continue to be professional contacts.

“I was excited and encouraged by the outreach I received in response to this post.”
