“As Managing Editor, Anne-Marie took sole reponsibility for the production of a monthly publication and a series of diabetes information leaflets. She played a key part the charity gaining a Department of Health Information Standard acceditation for these publications in early 2011 – a kite mark which indicates quality, relevance, reliability and up-to-date health and social care information.

With an interest in developing the charity’s online presence, Anne-Marie worked diligently to provide fresh copy for inclusion on our website and the distribution of a monthly e-news blast. Both these activities drove increased traffic to the site and have enabled DRWF to build and maintain the interest of a wider audience. Anne-Marie was adaptable in writing for cross-media channels.

Developing excellent relationships with both colleagues, stakeholders and beneficiaries of the charity’s education and information resources, has been key to Anne-Marie delivering pertinent, user-friendly information on time, on budget and always with a smile. Her integrity is unquestionable.” September 30, 2011

“I approached Anne-Marie to take over editorial control of the Mary Rose 500 Appeal newsletter, Crew Cuts in August. Anne-Marie had already been very involved as a fundraiser for the 500 Appeal and had also covered news stories about the new Museum project as a freelance journalist. Her enthusiasm for the project and her interest in maritime archaeology made her the perfect person to contribute to Crew Cuts. Crew Cuts is a quarterly fundraising newsletter which goes out to all the supporters of the Mary Rose. It features a mix of news stories, interviews with fundraisers and fun articles.

I was delighted with the edition that Anne-Marie produced. The content was spot on with a real mix of the serious and the fun features. Her research was excellent and the personal interviews informative. The design was fresh and reader’s feedback has been very positive. Anne-Marie project managed professionally and to deadline, and was a delight to work with. I have no reservations about recommending her work to other organisations.” December 1st, 2010
