I’m back in DC after a long, long day trip to Harvard to lecture at the Belfer Center and delighted to say that they want to partner with us on the professional development materials (which of course you will edit!!).
How cool is that; WINS and Harvard in three short years. Says something about our brand and your excellence in producing the guides.

Thanks for this analysis of my manuscript. It has given me much food for thought.
—Dr. John Kitzhaber, Governor of Oregon
Many, many thanks! You are a godsend. It is so much better!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!! Your insightful questions really helped me crystallize my ideas. God bless your enthusiasm and willingness to help. I meant that by virtue of your first rewrite (there) I am now in a place where I can refine a coherent story (here). We need your brilliant and creative input.

When I was the CEO at ProReason, Clarice composed and edited several important documents for us. We were extremely pleased with the quality and timeliness of her work, which we found to be exceptional in all respects. Clarice demonstrates a consistent polite, professional manner and is poised and crystal clear in all of her communications.
Everyone who engaged with Clarice reported that working with her was a pleasure. I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone seeking professional writing or editing services, and I personally look forward to another opportunity to work with her.
—Joseph Howell, Managing Director, WebFilings, CA
As ever, I have to defer to the ‘surgical precision’ and Clarice’s technical skills! [Although I suspect that Clarice would dissect and improve my previous sentence! ] I am more than happy with Clarice’s editing and improvements and agree that the BPG is better for her attention!! I believe none of the technical detail has been lost by the technical edit. One day I shall learn to write like Clarice. However, at least this version suffered fewer corrections than others, so we are learning (!!)
—Malcolm Baker, Director, Resilience Limited, United Kingdom
First off… THANK YOU! I am immensely pleased. I am so glad you are working with me. I LOVE the way you’ve explained the career counseling process! I gave you a lot of material and you’ve captured the essence of my work. I sent an announcement to friends and colleagues about the site. Expect higher traffic. Accolades for the site design and content are already coming in.
—Rob Seemann, President, Career Livelihood LLC, Troutdale, Oregon
Clarice Dankers is exceptional. She is not only brilliant, but talented. Her communications skills certainly stand out. She speaks and writes with grace and sensitivity to audience. Clarice has extraordinary organizational skills. She is widely read and knows where to find information on just about anything.
And she’s a pleasure to be around. Besides the singular talents and skills she demonstrates, she is supportive and generous with ideas. She works hard. And she keeps her sense of humor. Whatever she turns her hand (and mind) to she does well.
—Dennis Stovall, Assistant Professor of English and founder of Ooligan Press, Portland State University, Portland, Oregon
You are an awesome writer. The press release you have written for me is superb.
—Dr. Kuo Chang, Owner, Asthma Allergy Centre, Tigard, Oregon
Clarice has a fine appreciation of the subtleties of structure, diction, and tone that elevate adequate writing into something compelling—and the enthusiasm to convey these concepts to others. She has a natural warmth and humor that enables her to establish rapport with almost anyone. But I would say that her single most important qualification is simply her love of language. Reading, writing, singing; words to analyze, translate, ponder, and most of all—to share.
—Estelle Bollinger, Senior Director, Contracts and Proposals, Usha Communications Technology, Portland, Oregon
Thank you for the edits, Clarice. They are beautiful and also very directive, which is great. I especially like how you edited the opening section. You really have an eye for beginnings (and middles, and endings, and everything in between…!) Plus it is obvious to me that you “know your stuff” when it comes to meditation.
Your suggestions for the “Scientific Research” section are helpful – I’ll review the studies I pulled from and tighten it up. Thank you SO much for standing by my side every step of the way and helping me give birth to this baby! Working with you has far exceeded my expectations of what it would mean to have an editor and writing coach.
―Ann Elizabeth Grace, Author, Finding Your Calling: From Confusion to Clarity in Your Twenties
This is a beautiful thing, Clarice. I can’t believe you took that blathering “stream of conciousness” and turned it into a presentable professional letter. Unbelievable! You sure can write! Clarice, I want to say sincerely that your services are invaluable and will serve me well for years to come. Thanks again.
—Michael Mintz, Environmental Engineer
