RECOMMENDATIONS
"Maria demonstrated nothing less than total professionalism. She was engaged in her work, as she always was ready to learn more about SI and our department. She was also exceptionally thorough and reliable; I could count on her to deliver on deadline. And Maria was also able to think ahead. She could anticipate what my next project would be -- often before I knew it myself!" —Sheryl Spain, former Associate Director of Communications for Sports Illustrated

"Maria joined our staff in the middle of our busiest season. Maria jumped right in, memorizing our style guide and proofreading hundreds of pages within her first few days. She impressed everyone on staff with her hardworking attitude, her speed and accuracy, and her ability to take the initiative, ask smart questions, and work independently. She showed that she is a serious editor with a great attitude—willing to do whatever it takes to assure the highest quality in our printed books." —Zoe Kashner, former Managing Editor, World Almanac Education Group
