I have also added two previous students’ reviews for your perusal:


"The communication was excellent. Marielle sent me emails at every turn and she responded promptly to my emails. She's excellent. Absolute professionalism and reliability." - Kgabo Badimo, (UNISA PhD Candidate)


"Marielle’s editing skills are excellent. She was diligent and very specific when making recommendations as to how I can improve my dissertation.  I could not have asked for a better editor as she responded to my emails promptly and everything was done in time.” - Shirande Moolman (University of Pretoria Masters Candidate)


I also work with local publishers in editing and proofreading novels of all kinds as well as magazine articles (focus on Veterinary Magazines).

My secondary focus is on Graphic Design and Photography, both of which I have certifications for, respectively. From general design to assisting local publishers in the layout and design of their magazines, I can assist with numerous projects.

If there are any other queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to working with you!
