Jessie Shafer is one of my favorite editors! Her knowledge of nutrition and diabetes allow us to discuss a story idea in depth before I even start writing. She is more thorough and organized than most of the people I work with. But what really makes it fun to work with Jessie are her enthusiasm and whit.
Jessie took what could have been a huge headache and made it painless by delivering clean, precise nutritional data for a cookbook project with a lot of moving parts. She was flexible and patient with our rolling deadlines, and she asked great questions and made valuable suggestions that saved us time and made for a better product. She’s a pro and so easy to work with. We’re looking forward to our next project with her.
It was a privilege to work with Jessie. She has passion, compassion, and a goal-oriented approach to tasks.
As someone who has had the opportunity to work with Jessie as she’s pursued her dream I’m delighted she’s blending her creative communication tools and skills to deliver evidence-based nutrition information to consumers. The blend of Jessie’s talents will be vital in the near future as nutrition and healthy eating will play a more significant role in preventive healthcare.
Jessie is a very motivated individual that has a passion for nutrition and helping educate others on the importance of nutrition. Along with her editorial and writing background, she has a talent for sharing nutrition education in an easy to understand way for all levels of individuals.
I really enjoyed working with Jessie. She is professional, a self-starter, and she added considerable value to our program.
