Great job on the story book edits. Super glad to have you on it. Yer brimming with spectaculousity, at least that’s what we think. Thanks for wading through egregious use of commas and hyphens and misplaced apostrophes, and setting things right and proper. – Matt Thompson, Principal, Story & Co.
I am writing to say thank you, and to acknowledge the tremendous job that you did coordinating Bikefest on behalf of MEC Ottawa. In 2014, Bikefest was like starting over from scratch again – a new location, a new authority to consult, and a new focus for the festival – you made this transition feel effortless. Your experience in event organization, and your skills as a writer and editor meant the event was a resounding success. By far this year MEC Ottawa has had the greatest level of media exposure prior to the festival that I have ever seen! On the day of the festival, I received nothing but hugely positive feedback from attendees, vendors, and our advocacy partners. Thanks! – Chris Chapman, Outreach Coordinator, MEC Ottawa
Laurel achieved exceptional success as grant writer for Kimberley Summer Theatre Society. Her style is precise and economical, and she was able to present the society’s program in a very appealing way. – Steve Waterhouse, Director, Kimberley Summer Theatre Society
Wildsight has always been able to count on Laurel’s editing and proofreading skills. Her laser focus on detail has helped us hone in on specific messaging for our varying audiences. She can take a soft push and make it a swift kick or take a hard punch and turn it into a gentle reminder. – Kelly Wood, former Operations Director, Wildsight
I just wanted to thank for your help on the grant last year. This summer I finally got a development grant, wooohooo, and I think in part because I learned so much from your help. So THANK YOU!!! – Michael Watts, international dance and performance artist
Laurel Ralston (president of Kimberley’s Arts Council) has been an excellent help and is a grant-writing fiend (she actually loves doing it). – Nicola Everton, Kootenay Chapter Coordinator, Health Arts Society
