Heather Martin’s coaching style has improved my writing exponentially. She wasn’t shy about the areas I needed to grow and we leveraged existing assignments to measure progress on a real-time basis. In the team setting, her energy, creativity and workshop-format creates space for our team to learn experientially, while providing actionable skills that strengthen our team.

As a longtime writer and communications professional, I have had the pleasure of working with many editors. My experience with Heather Martin stands out as one of the best. She worked with me beyond the mechanics of grammar to steward the cadence and purpose of my work, helping me to convey meaning thoughtfully and effectively. I’m so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her.

English is not my first language, and I have always felt self-conscious about my writing. Heather coached me for about two years, and I became known as one of the best writers on my team. I am deeply grateful for her patience and for helping me improve my written communication skills, without losing my love for story-telling and data. I appreciate her insistence on being “economical” with my words in order to present an argument succinctly and effectively.
-Monica Beltran, W.K. Kellogg Foundation
Heather is wonderful to work with! She works to get the entire context before we just dive right into my writing needs. Right now, I’m working with her to help me refine the press releases that I’m drafting for each of our investee engagements. She has been very helpful in getting me to refrain from using SVP jargon and to place our capacity building into the broader context of how nonprofits are making an impact in the Denver community.

In each of our consulting sessions, Heather helps me see what makes a positive impact and what is superfluous in my work. She offers praise and constructive ideas on how to improve everything such as threading themes throughout the document, weaving paragraphs together, structuring sentences, and using proper grammar. She makes an effort to understand my project and offers valuable insight. My writing has improved because of her influence. I appreciate her enthusiasm and welcome her inspiration.
