While I was Science Publisher at McGraw-Hill Ryerson, I had the good fortune to hire Jill Bryant as a Developmental Editor and Features Writer on the SciencePower series. Jill fulfilled her roles in an exemplary manner. She also worked as Project Manager on a complex, multi-author Grade 12 Physics project, which benefited tremendously from her superb organizational, editorial, and interpersonal skills. Jill is a multi-talented professional who always gets the job done well–on time and on budget.

Jill has always been one of the top freelance writer/editors that I used. She is thorough in her editorial work and creative as a writer. Her ability and commitment to working within the client’s guidelines also makes her a top-rated freelancer. Jill’s range of content knowledge and understanding of children are key strengths that mean she can tackle just about anything. Having Jill on a project is always a plus.
