You are passionate about your message,
and you want to make sure it’s clear for your audience.
I can help you with that.
I'm Heather Ross, and I am passionate about working with words.
After a decade of large-scale project management, I've switched gears to bring my project and editing skills together to work one-on-one with writers. I love working with innovators like you, who have a clear vision and a message to share.
My editing work is a collaboration with you. From beginning to end, my goal is to ensure that your unique, distinct voice is clear in every word.
