I knew in the first five minutes of interviewing Lori that we’d be lucky to hire her. Her reputation as both a phenomenal editor and person preceded her, and yet she still managed to exceed every expectation I had.
As an organization, we had made a conscious shift from quantity of content to quality of content. We had already built a strong in-house writing team, and had a growing bench of excellent freelance writers, but we needed someone who could help us maintain super-high editorial standards (and help create new standards) … someone who could take something that was slightly off-brand and make it sing “Benevity” … someone who could think like our audience and see if what we were putting into the world would resonate or not. In short, not only a proofreader but someone who could elevate our work to new levels — and Lori did that for us. I will be eternally grateful for the time she gave us, and if you hire her, you will be too.
