“As a colleague of Michèle’s for more than a year, I found her professional, reliable and a pleasure to work with.
Michèle’s good grace, sense of calm under pressure and attention to detail could be counted on when a deadline approached and an extra set of eyes was needed to review a document or proposal for spelling, grammar, formatting and visual appeal.”
Jill Rutherford, Calgary
“I worked with Michèle for over 9 years and was amazed by her outstanding editing skills. Michèle’s attention to detail and passion for grammatically correct use of the English language are impressive. By quickly, professionally, and cheerfully reviewing the work that is presented to her, you can be assured of copy that reads well and will be well read.”
Grant Eberlin, Toronto
“I have just retired as the Senior Manager, Property Services and Asset Management, from The Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), a company Michèle worked for from 1990 to 2005. I have had the pleasure of knowing Michèle since 1990 and had the good fortune to have Michèle work for me as a Property Assistant from 1999 until 2005 when she relocated to Calgary. I hired Michèle from TRCA’s Marketing Department where she worked as an Editorial Assistant preparing press releases, designing monthly publications, and updating documents on the corporate website.
Michèle’s many skills sets, including her attention to detail; ability to meet deadlines; word processing; collaboration; proofreading/editing and professionalism, made her an ideal candidate for the Property Assistant role and she immediately became an important member of our Property team. The real estate work environment is very demanding in respect to thoroughness, deadlines, accuracy and attention to detail and Michèle consistently delivered in all aspects. Michèle was always helpful, respectful and responsive to TRCA clients.
I knew when Michèle was assigned a task, it would be done on time and correctly.
I believe others could benefit from Michèle’s work ethic and skill sets.”

“On a friend’s recommendation I decided to use Eagle Eye to ensure my website was free of spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. Michèle was a breeze to work with and found things that my eye simply didn’t see. I risk losing both credibility and customers if people find errors in my website. Thanks Michèle for doing such a great, timely job!”

“When you need a second set of eyes on your work, look no further than Michèle. Her timely, professional and diligent proofreading and editing services can elevate your document from good to great. What’s more, her courteous and genuinely friendly disposition makes working with Michèle feel a lot less like work.”
Matt Quail, Calgary
“When we are performing at our strategic and creative best we are often quickly producing materials that may not be accurate in spelling, grammar and punctuation. Sometimes I say, “so what?” as long as the recipient (our client) gets the content. BUT there is a big “so what?” because we are professional and our materials must not only be insightful and thoughtful, they must be accurate.
Michèle Young always made us accurate. Her sharp eye and thorough reviews polished our work, and because of her we shine brightly with our clients and potential clients.
Accuracy is Michèle!”

“Michèle is awesome and looks beyond syntax and grammar to the scope and style of my writing and substance of the message. Her words brought life to a lifeless article.”
“As a first-time author, I was looking for someone who could proofread and edit my autobiographical book and give it a much-needed professional polish before I shopped it around. Michèle Young provided an attention to detail that was meticulous and made the entire proofread very easy to follow. I found Michèle to be highly professional, very capable, committed to deadlines and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend her services and look forward to working with her again in the future.”
“I’ve been acquainted with Michèle for many years as a corporate writer and former owner of a public relations company. Yet only recently did I have the privilege of meeting her in person. I was delighted to witness the simpatico we’ve shared as long-distance colleagues slide effortlessly into a valued friendship.
Pocketsoup.com is a new and growing collection of creative non-fiction stories and affirmations about living well. Once again, I have engaged Michèle’s exacting eagle eyes to ensure the clarity and grammatical integrity of the content.
As a writer, it gives me confidence to know my words have been vetted by a scrupulous and discerning editor who “gets” what I’m trying to say.”
