Lorri and I worked on a business book project together in 2013,

and it was a delight to have her on my team. She became my right arm. She was hired to help manage the book production process, 

but she took on editing and other tasks as necessary. She was professional, collaborative, and supportive. We worked well

together, keeping each otherinformed and involved.

I would work with Lorri again in a heartbeat.

Lorri was a reliable, talented addition to my staff, and

I recommend her highly … She developed an updated look for

our magazine, added some successful, new recurring

segments, updated the photography, and made

new printing arrangements that reduced our costs.

I hired Lorri Ungaretti to edit my Master's thesis.

She caught a thousand little things, and when she found

my writing to be unclear or inconsistent, she always made

good suggestions. This was the second time I used Lorri's

services, and I would recommend her for any project

requiring good editing and strong organizational skills.
