Prepare a proposal for the US agency, National Science Foundation​ - 5.00 stars

Mary did a spectacular job for us on very short notice. She worked on our (unreasonable!) schedule to get a proposal prepared for submission. Her work was above-and-beyond our expectations. The thoroughness of her attention to detail was exemplary. I couldn't say enough about how helpful she was to us and the top quality of her work.

Editing & Proofreading - 5.00 stars
