What Others Say About Elizabeth, a.k.a. RiverwoodWriter:
“While the words writer and editor do technically describe what Elizabeth Cottrell does, she is also much more. As a naturally gifted Master Connector Elizabeth connects people with resources, tools, insights and of course, other people AND she’s an encourager, passionately embracing a vital role that is all too often simply missing from our responsibility-laden adult lives.
Elizabeth is one of the warmest, most genuinely caring people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and I’m truly honored to call her my colleague as well as my friend. I give her my highest recommendation!”
—Ellen Britt, PA, Ed.D., Co-Founder, The Content Doctors
“Elizabeth Cottrell is one of the clearest thinkers and most articulate communicators I have encountered in my career. She harnesses a superior intellect, an exceptional ability to focus on the task at hand, and a highly engaging personal style to provide value across a broad range of projects and services. Her ability to synthesize disparate information and sources and to communicate clearly and concisely to targeted audiences, both in writing and in oral presentations, makes her particularly effective as a business writer and editor.”
–Charles Sheridan, Senior Vice President, Oracle Corporation (retired), Owner, Sheridan’s Retreat
“Elizabeth takes sophisticated technology and communicates it so that key stakeholders and constituents can easily understand it. This gift, coupled with critical wordsmithing talent, gives her a unique editorial skillset for many applications. Her involvement at board level in many organizations across a variety of sectors gives her a valuable strategic perspective to any analytic or planning challenge. Additionally, after planning, she has the energy to implement effectively.”
–Jim Herbert, Vice President, Mid Atlantic Industrial Practice Group (Land Brokerage and Advisory)
“Elizabeth has helped me at two different companies, first with web site content writing and second with web site design and social media consultation. She is always a fount of timely and expert information, she’s a quick study and excellent writer, and she was able to coach me through setting up and designing my website–no small feat! She consistently goes above and beyond in service and performance, all the while with a glad heart and cheerful demeanor. Her coaching skills—patience, insight, content knowledge (did I mention patience?) are outstanding. I couldn’t be more pleased with what we created together and she continues to offer me fresh ideas about more ways to get my work to a wider audience through social media. I highly recommend Elizabeth Cottrell!”
–Sarah C. Albritton, President, Leadership Innovations, Inc.
“Elizabeth has helped us set up and manage the Facebook page for Lackawanna Bed and Breakfast. The number of visitors, “Likes,” and comments has been steadily increasing. Our weekly quotes and recipe or creativity postings have been very popular. She is also great with wording and has helped us with promotional literature and emails. We are very pleased with the progress we have made in this venture in a relatively short period of time.”
—Sandra Charles, Inkeeper, Lackawanna Bed and Breakfast, Front Royal, VA
“Elizabeth handles the page layout for our non-profit association’s quarterly newsletter (20-32 pages). She gets the job done, it’s done extremely well and it’s always done on time. She does wonders for our newsletter. Every quarter she makes me look great as the Editor. I am very proud to work with and know Elizabeth.”
–David Spanburg, Editor Cottonbaler, the newsletter of the 7th Infantry Regiment Association
