Testimonials from people who have worked with Patricia through her involvement as a longtime volunteer in community activities.
Testimonial from Margaret Bloomburg: 2015
“As Editor of the Quail Creek X-Tra, a community monthly newsletter, for almost four years, it was always a pleasure to receive contributions from Pat Thoresen. She could be counted on to present great copy with proper grammar and adhere to the restrictions that had been put in place for this newsletter. When dealing with her personally, we came to expect prompt professional attention. She comes highly recommended from this organization.”
Margaret Blumberg, Editor, Quail Creek X-Tra
“I have worked with Pat Thoresen for over four years, publishing articles she has written for our community newsletter, the Quail Creek X-tra. Writing for multiple organizations in Quail Creek, she has always been able to organize her material, focus on the salient points, and present her ideas clearly. She is responsive and prompt when follow-up is needed.
Because of her keen interest in photography, she has also been able to illustrate her articles with photographs that add significantly to the impact of her writing.
I can recommend Pat’s work to anyone who has a need for copywriting and photography.”
