It was wonderful to work with Vanessa. She was enthousiast and we got the feeling she really cared about the project and asked questions to improve sentences. We gave her a little free space to experiment with a couple lines and she gave us multiple great versions.
We really recommend working with Vanessa, she’s very professional and it’s nice to have worked with her!
