Allena is an extremely talented writer, who consistently meets deadlines and exceeds expectations. Her English to Spanish translation services have been extremely beneficial to our social justice advocacy work. I would highly recommend Allena for writing and translation services.

Zack Pohl, formerly of Progress Michigan, currently Communications Director at the Michigan AFL-CIO

As a freelance writer, Allena wrote stellar articles for WOW! Women On Writing.com. Her articles were always well researched, and clearly and engagingly written. Allena's attention to detail, thoroughness, and respect for deadlines make her a valuable freelance asset to busy editors. Because of my confidence in Allena's writing and editing skills, as well as her positive client relations, I have referred my clients to her when I was unavailable to attend to their needs.
