Sophie is professional, capable, dedicated and a pleasure to work with and I have no hesitation in recommending her wholeheartedly.”

She is a strong champion for meaningful user experience and intuitively thinks from the user’s perspective. I also found her to be insightful, highly committed and lots of fun to work with. I’d highly recommend her!”

“Sophie is a talented, egoless writer. Despite working in different countries, it was incredibly easy and a complete joy to work with her. Sophie and I were able to complete many successful projects, including a re-write of our transactional emails that increased our donor net promoter score by 18%. Sophie had a knack for understanding cultural differences and successfully communicated to American and British users. Sophie’s gift for communicating the brand and tone of voice humanized the JustGiving and FirstGiving sites, giving many users a sense of security, satisfaction and pride for raising money and donating.”

Ben Lingard,
Finance Manager, FirstGiving

“Sophie is an agile member of any team as well being sublime as a content editor and brand visionary. Taking ownership of JustGiving’s blogging & tweeting side for a large percentage of the company – enabling the overall user experience/brand style to seem as if it were one and the same. Even when working with numerous key stakeholders, she would always achieve fantastic results. Furthermore, Sophie is always keeping ahead of the game – working with teams in brainstorming, user experience and focusing on copy, working with both American & English teams for different tones of voice.”
Kai Chan Vong, Designer/Front-end developer, JustGiving

“Sophie is an excellent copywriter. She is very skilled at cutting through complicated or confused messaging to make it easy for the reader to understand. She spends time asking questions to make sure she has the information she needs (including the context of the project and the tone of voice). I’ve worked with Sophie on a few different projects at JustGiving, sometimes at short notice, and she has never missed a deadline. If you want a copywriting job done well and delivered on time, I’d definitely recommend Sophie.”
