"I have collaborated with Lesya on several projects, including corporate climate action reports. Most recently, we worked together on the 2020 Climate Plan: 100% Renewable and Resilient Saanich while I was acting Manager of Sustainability for the District of Saanich. I could always count on Lesya's well-reasoned, thoughtful and honest suggestions. She made bold structural edits to the draft Saanich Climate Plan, which made a heavy document easier to follow. Her work helped my team produce a plan that conveys many complex ideas in a viewer-friendly manner. And her humour and professionalism made a challenging task on a compressed schedule easier and more enjoyable!"

Lesya’s excellent writing and editing abilities in the development of park management plans proved to be very valuable for all four projects. With Lesya’s contributions, the Regional District completed management plans that now guide the development and management of these protected park areas."

"Lesya’s comprehensive manuscript assessment was invaluable as I worked on my second novel. I’d been wrestling with this project, knowing something wasn’t right, but I was unable to put my finger on it. With great respect for my process, Lesya helped me establish goals for exploring my concerns. Lesya celebrated the strengths of my writing with encouragement and enthusiasm, while having the confidence and expertise to point out problems with consistency in character development and in pacing of the plot. Lesya’s honesty allowed me to develop trust in her evaluation — from overall structure, to character development, pacing and narrative arc. I highly recommend Lesya for anyone interested in the pursuit of excellence in writing."
