  • Got attention to detail? If not, get Stacy! She has a keen eye for the details of writing and grammar. Stacy is a very creative writer whether it be creating instructional materials or writing about her passion for animals. As an employee, she was "the one who got us going" with her sharp wit and positive attitude...just beware her red pen!I would recommend Stacy on a number of fronts and can honestly say she would be an excellent addition to any writing team!

  • As an author, radio show host and pet life specialist, I would like to formally recommend Stacy Mantle. I have worked with her on several projects, but most recently, Stacy was a guest on my radio show, Healthy Life. It was one of our best shows, and we plan to have her back for a longer series. She is highly respected in the petcare world as a writer, speaker and humane educator, and manages to share this knowledge in a way that is both amusing and informative. What sets Stacy apart from other writers is her creative outlook and fresh ideas as she is always searching for better ways to do things. In doing so, she incorporates a unique point of view on almost every subject. She is professional, organized, always meets deadlines and is one of the most creative people I have had the pleasure of working with. Despite her busy schedule, she always makes time to help out friends and other small businesses, often at extensive costs to herself. Yet, she never complains and is always happy to give whatever she can. I look forward to working with her in the future and encourage others to do the same. I highly recommend Stacy Mantle for all of your writing and marketing needs.
