Here’s what some of my clients have to say about my work:
Contributing to Hagerstown magazine since 2010
“In the scant few years I’ve worked with Missy, she has continuously stood out as a ‘writer I can rely on.’ One of my half-boiled ideas, a couple sources, and a deadline are routinely turned into captivating copy that tracks well with both our online and print readers. Being afforded the peace of mind knowing that a story is ‘under control’ when she is working on it goes a long way when all the plates are spinning. Missy is a writer I would just as soon trust to write my obituary as a story on advancements in stem cell therapy. Finding a writer with that versatility is an asset to any organization looking to promote itself or share an idea.”
– Matt Makowski, editor-in-chief for Hagerstown magazine in Hagerstown, Maryland, since 2013
Copy editing and proofreading novels for author Amy Ruth Allen
“Missy is a meticulous, efficient, and thoroughly professional proofreader and copy editor. I have used her for two large novels and a small non-fiction book, and I am continuously amazed by the things she finds and the recommendations she makes. Her fact-checking skills are also outstanding. It is obvious by the results of her work that she consciously uses a strategic, organized, and thoughtful approach to a project. I know I am in good hands with Missy, and have come to rely on her. I can’t imagine forgoing her services. She has become an integral part of my writing process.”
Marketing and Public Relations Work
Writing blog posts, press releases, and social media content for R.M. Roach & Sons (November 2015 – present)
“I have been working with Missy for over a year and have only wonderful things to say about the quality of her work and professional attitude she consistently demonstrates. It is such a relief to know that I can count on her to deliver exceptional quality work each month that requires little to no oversight.
She currently writes the social media marketing content, SEO blog posts, and press releases for 3 very unique business units where I oversee marketing & sales. These business units are vastly different in nature and require Missy’s writing to be very versatile—to which she has exceeded my expectations. Her advanced writing style allows her to apply a unique voice to each brand she is writing for; she effectively captures and understands each distinctive audience. In the case of the SEO blog posts she writes, she leverages this ability to capture an audience’s attention and turns it into customer conversations and enhanced search engine rankings.
Missy exhibits great attention to detail and care in her work. I can trust that she conducts all necessary research to make her writing accurate, relevant, and interesting to our readers.
I believe that Missy’s professionalism and versatility matched with her own industry knowledge will allow her to excel at any editorial project she is challenged with—and I look forward to following her work.”
Writing blog posts for PSI Group (November 2015 – March 2016)
“The overall feedback has been wonderful for each blog post that Missy has written for us. The amount of research, organization and creativity she puts into every topic fits perfectly with my overall marketing goals for PSI and the new branding we are moving toward. Being in a niche industry that is so heavily focused on form vs. function means we need to be able to play into both of those needs on a consistent basis, and Missy’s writing helps us ensure we are developing resources based around those two key needs.
Missy’s ability to thread a theme through an entire post and develop a catchy closing makes her work stand out. She is organized and devoted to the research phase—which always shines in the finished piece.
One of the things I enjoy most about working with Missy is that she’s a go-getter. I can throw a super dry topic on her plate, and she will happily tackle it with as much enthusiasm as the more creative and inspiring topics. That consistency in work ethic is what keeps us coming back.”
– Jessica Knipe-Semler, design & marketing manager for PSI Group, a packaging services company based in Williamsport, Maryland
Writing social media biography for real estate agent Renee Waymire (April 2015)
“Missy, I just wanted to thank you for the phenomenal bio that you recently did for me. Like most people, it’s really hard to write about yourself. You were able to write about me like you have known me for years. Thank you so much for highlighting my skills, strengths, and knowledge. I’m proud to share my bio with everyone! High recommendations for your work, Missy Sheehan!”
– Renee Waymire, real estate agent based in Winchester, Virginia
Writing brochure content for Heartly House (volunteer project – February 2014)
“I had the good fortune to work with Missy Sheehan on a recent pro bono project. She donated her time as a writer to help our nonprofit with a much-needed new brochure.
Missy quickly absorbed lots of information—much of it very detailed—on sensitive issues surrounding domestic violence and sexual assault. She did additional research and found even more compelling statistics than we had provided to her.
She was such a professional in her writing and in her ability to work collaboratively on short deadlines. The final product is one our organization is very proud to use. Missy provided us with a mix of facts and copy that will make our outreach and awareness efforts so much more effective. She is great!”
– Mary Ellis, interim managing director for Heartly House, a nonprofit organization in Frederick, Maryland
