"I am a lawyer who takes pride in his drafting. Several years ago, I collaborated with Breesa on a fundraising project. I had put a lot of effort into a letter that I thought was quite good. with grace and humor, Breesa took ownership of my appeal, completely redid it, and improved it by 110%. After I picked my ego up from the floor, I accepted all of her changes. I would recommend Breesa to anyone without hesitation."
