I feel so lucky to have been referred to Millicent. I am a long-winded writer, hence this might be a little wordy, but hopefully words that highlight what a gifted listener and creative Milly is. She was really able to help me highlight/clarify salient and meaningful concepts to our brand, especially for our website. While with our blog, she retained our voice and enhanced it, making it clearer and more on point for our reader/client. I just also really appreciate Milly's warmth, candidness, and helpfulness. She is amazing with a deadline and got me out of some pinches. While I do try to be a planner, I appreciate that she's been there when all planning goes out the window and you need help in a pinch. I feel so lucky to have a Milly on board to help our company's messaging thrive. She's not only a copywriter, but a collaborator when I need some focus to my ideas. She's wise and gifted in so many areas. I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Content Marketing is absolutely the most important strategy this year for building an audience. I needed help pulling together an article and Milly totally came through for me! I gave her a few highlights about what I wanted to cover and what my goal for the article was, and she took it from there. I absolutely love the end result! Collaborating with Milly was a great experience. She has great instinct for what content to cover, and is an excellent writer.

Milly is an exceptional editor, mentor, and leader. When I worked with her at the San Francisco Examiner, I found her to be an incredibly thoughtful and talented editor who always brought intelligent perspective to content she and her team were creating. On more than one occasion, Milly guided me to making the editorial decisions necessary to best serve the interests of our readers and our community, rather than the interests of my ego and pride. Especially as a junior reporter, it was very easy to want to push a story to print if and when sources were seen as not being cooperative. Milly always prioritized what would help make the content be the most helpful and enlightening vs. reacting to what can often be personal and petty little gripes that occur when putting the story together. This is a value she instilled in me that I hold dear today and have worked very hard to instill it in others. She's creative, funny, hard-working, and an all-around amazing human being who will never drop the ball.

I have had the opportunity to work with Millicent in two different roles. We were both reporters at the San Mateo County Times and she was the associate editor I reported to when I was the calendar editor and a freelance writer at Bay Area Parent magazine. On both occasions she has shown a great degree of professionalism, talent and dependability. When we worked together at Bay Area Parent she taught me a lot about writing and editing for a magazine and helped me move into a higher position. I would highly recommend Millicent for any writing, editor or supervisor role.
Teresa Mills-Faraudo, Associate Editor at Bay Area Parent
Milly and I worked together for several years at Bay Area Parent. She was an integral part of a small team and was equally comfortable taking initiative, generating ideas and heading up projects as pitching in on tasks that required teamwork. Her writing is clear, concise and clean, with a distinctive voice when warranted. In addition, she's a quick and thorough editor. She's also a pleasure to work with and would be a great addition any team.
Janine DeFao Hayward, Associate Editor at Bay Area Parent
I’ve known Milly for many years, both personally and professionally. At my time at Patch as a Regional Editor, Milly was one of our most dedicated freelancers. She developed story and content ideas and turned around articles and photos quickly. Milly is a reliable, thoughtful journalist. I also had the pleasure of working alongside her at The San Francisco Examiner when we were both reporters and editors. Milly can effortlessly juggle the many hats it takes to create content for a daily publication. She is an excellent writer, editor and manager and easily meets deadlines. I would work with her again in a heartbeat and know she would be an excellent hire for any company!
