Angela gets it. She is the perfect combination of someone passionately committed to the issues she works on, and effortlessly professional in understanding the needs of a project. A great writer and editor with a good visual sense, Angela provides a range of skills that you would normally only get by working with several people at once. Because she is also curious and interested, a great listener and conversationalist, you can also be sure that she won’t even begin a piece of work until she fully understands what you are trying to achieve. In fact, as I’m sitting here, I’m wondering if she might be available for a piece of work I’ve...

I have no hesitation in recommending Angela as a writer, editor and interviewer. She has a strong understanding of development issues and a talent for creating engaging human interest stories. She has written many online and offline communications for CAFOD and always delivers on time and on brief – which is why we use her again and again. She's also a very good interviewer, managing to coax excellent stories from both adults and children in diverse locations, such as East Timor and East Africa.

Angela has worked with ActionAid on a freelance basis many times and she is the first person I turn to when I need extra help. She is reliable and always produces high-quality work, whatever the task in hand. I like the fact that she is extremely self sufficient in her work, I know I can set a task, leave her to it, and she will come back with a great product. She is friendly and engaging and I absolutely wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.
Stephanie Ross, former Editorial Manager, ActionAid

After ten years of working with Angela, I can say without hesitation that she is unfailingly professional, knowledgeable and talented. She knows about development; she writes well and fluently; and she knows how to work effectively with authors; her interviews go right to the point. There's not much more you could ask for in a freelance consultant.
Sarah Stewart, former Head of Editorial, Christian Aid

Angela is a great wordsmith – able to hit the ground running and interpret (often complex) briefs on a wide range of issues. Whether writing or editing, she is skilled in producing copy that is accessible to different audiences and is always calm and professional – even when working to 'challenging' deadlines. We have worked together on a number of projects, ranging from communications on drugs and alcohol misuse to bereavement, overseas development and collection of educational case studies.
Helena Hepburn, Project Manager, The Forster Company

Angela delivers good quality work on time and to budget. Once she's on the case you know its taken care of. She gets the job done. What more do you need?
Mark Farmaner, Director, Burma Campaign UK

Angela is a joy to work with. I’ve been her colleague and employed her on a freelance basis and you always know that Angela will deliver work on time and to a very high standard. She gets the best out of people because she’s friendly, engaging and treats people with respect. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
