“As someone who wrote a LOT of application essays, I highly recommend getting a second set of eyes to look at your work. Even though I consider myself a relatively good writer, Gerrie’s edits helped add clarity and conciseness to my work- something that is critical for a personal statement. Since I got into medical school, it’s safe to say that it worked! Also, there’s something worth noting about getting someone to read your personal statement that reads a lot of personal statements; it’s a really specific type of writing, and she’s got tons of experience with it.”

“I’ve never been a very good writer, so when it came time to write my personal statement for medical school, I started freaking out. I had ideas of what I wanted to write about but had a hard time putting them down on paper. Gerrie was a lifesaver because she not only helped me develop my ideas but also really helped me polish my statement. She was there for me every step of the way, and without her help, I would not have ended up with such an amazing personal statement.”

“During the summer of 2016, Gerrie and I were particularly distracted during a summer microbiology class, and Gerrie’s mother kindly reminded us the Physician Assistant deadline was due in 2 months. So, after hours of crying, panicking, and self-doubting, I got started on my personal statement for CASPA and reached out to the best writer I know. She somehow turned a jumbled list of brainstorm ideas into a beautifully written, compelling, and concise personal statement that eventually got me accepted into the program.

I was really overwhelmed and unsure where to start, but working with Gerrie was surprisingly easy. Her edits were always done in a timely and professional manner. She would never change my work directly, but add additional comments, information, and advice in GoogleDocs. I particularly enjoyed her style of feedback, which always has a hint of comedy in it. She praises the sections that she finds compelling and offers constructive criticism on the grammar and content. Her thorough knowledge of grammar and vast experience of writing various types of essays makes her an incredible asset to use.Myself and countless others wouldn’t have been able to achieve our dream schools, jobs, or scholarships without the help of Gerrie. ☺

“A better writer than she is a Support player.”

– Aaron Stuber, fellow League of Legends teammate (UASOM ’22)

“Gerrie has helped me with my writing in multiple spaces. Whether it is a graduate school application, personal creative writing, or a term paper, Gerrie edits with a fine tooth comb and is consistent. While her grammar edits are precise, Gerrie regularly kept my own voice and cadence in my work and gives useful suggestions that enhanced my writing style.”
