Screenshot of a linkedin testimonial from Michelle Domondon, which reads, "Letitia has the rare gift of excelling as both a master and a teacher of her craft. Her course has been invaluable to my growth as an academic editor. She explained the different editing needs of each type of academic writing and I experienced firsthand the benefits of working with an accomplished editor. But it didn't stop there. Recently, I secured by first informational interview where I mentioned some of the things that I had learned in Letitia's course. I was then offered a freelance position on the spot! Working with Letitia was the best thing I did for my career!"
