Jackie reveres the well-chosen word and prizes proper punctuation. She writes. She edits. She proofreads. (She answers to the honorary title “Eagle eye.”) When ghostwriting, she is able to channel executives with very distinctive communication styles—a challenge she particularly enjoys. In general, Jackie tends to details while bringing elegance to the whole and takes pleasure in helping people say what they mean.
