International Association of Professional Writers & Editors – Letter of Recommendation

Kathleen S. Hallett – Director of Memory Care
The Saybrook at Haddam

It is without reservation that I recommend Barbara Nelson as a candidate for an English teaching position in a foreign country.  I have worked with Barbara for over one year where she serves as the news editor for both our Associate Newsletter and Resident/Family publication. Barbara’s editing skills are comprehensive and accurate. She has a sound command of the English language both grammatically and in the oral form. These newsletter articles are created by many people and she gathers them, edits and formats the articles. As the editor, she generates the theme for all contributors to follow and then ensures that the publications are organized, informative and professionally presented.

She was easy to work with and understood the needs of my business.
