Christin is thorough, responsible and approaches every assignment professionally, thus making her a good representative for our organization in addition to being a valuable contributor.

Accuracy, making deadlines and clean writing are essential qualities of a good freelance writer and Christin hits on all three. Her production and range stand out. It is not uncommon for her to produce as many articles in a given week as a staff reporter and she completes articles consistently well that range from community features to the latest Beige Book report.

She’s an asset we rely on at The Daily Memphian.

Christin is like an extended member of our content team. She has helped reshape the content we produce for our quarterly magazine, and she has been an excellent partner. She delivers exceptional content (even in a quick turnaround) and I would highly recommend her work.

Christin is a talented and very professional freelance journalist. In her work for New Memphis, she approached each assignment with creativity and found the angle that made each subject most accessible and interesting. She is organized and thorough and met every deadline with time to spare. She produced stories, managed sources and worked with publications and photographers with very little direction—her work came in flawless. She was a joy to work with, and I’d recommend her to anyone looking for a freelance writer.

Christin set the bar by which I’ll measure all other young PR professionals. She’s passionate about PR and is always challenging herself to stay ahead of our ever-evolving industry. Christin is super talented and has an enviable work ethic. She’s so disciplined and efficient that she sometimes makes the rest of us look like we’re moving in slow motion. Given the opportunity, I would hire Christin 10 times over. Any employer or client would be lucky to have her on their team.
