"I write this reference with much enthusiasm to refer on the great writing talent of Kathryn Bechen. She is assured yet quiet and very polite. When I assigned her a feature article to interview a top-notch celebrity wedding planner on the West Coast for our glossy bridal magazine, she took the assignment cheerfully and started immediately. We therefore gave Kathryn more than 10 more writing assignments interviewing real couples about their weddings. She met all deadlines, with a very small amount of editing required, and this was only her first year writing for our publication, San Diego Style Weddings. I have been a magazine publisher for twenty years and Kathryn's organizational skills along with her enthusiasm were a true blessing for me to find. I look forward to working with her again in the near future!"
--Dena Malasek, Owner/Publisher

"I had the opportunity to work with Kathryn on a recent press visit to Palm Springs. She was a dream to work with and I am very happy with the article results in the Fall 2010 issue of San Diego Style Weddings magazine. In addition to the article, she blogged about her stay and experience in Palm Springs and she even came back to celebrate her wedding anniversary! Kathryn is a reliable and detail oriented writing professional."
--Hillary Angel, Public Relations Manager for Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism

"Kathryn turned my handwritten notes into clear, concise written copy, creating a wonderful flyer for my landscaping and garden clients. Her step-by-step instructions made it so much easier for them to take care of their garden once I left the scene, and they were very grateful for that. Kathryn is really wonderful to work with, is very conscious of meeting deadlines, and her writing style is beautiful, gracious, and informative."

"A big 'thank you' Kathryn for the lovely article you wrote in San Diego Style Weddings magazine about my design work. I was so thrilled to have been introduced to you by Dena and that you both found what I do interesting enough to interview me and promote the idea of 'Boudoir Bliss' for the honeymooning couple. I believe that your writing style has enough personal and informational goods to draw the reader into visualizing the 'Romanticism' of one of my 'Master Suite Makeovers.' "

"I really do appreciate all you have done for me which is more than just writing my website content. You have brought inspiration to me with your words of wisdom, stories, and you have given me advice when I needed it. I will remember you always when I feel at a loss or down about my business. You made the process so much fun by taking the time to getting to know the real me. I have worked with a few business coaches in the past, but, I have to say that every time we met over the phone I felt like I was talking with my best friend! Thank you Kathryn from the bottom of my heart; you will always be an inspiration to me and I look forward to working with you again in the future!"
