"Working with Andrea is not simply about developing content and increasing website traffic. Andrea puts words to the stories that support, celebrate and set the tone for the community we are building. She has become the voice of our organization and a critical extension of our team. She is calm, organized and thoughtful, all while managing multiple clients and projects, which has led to a relationship built on trust and confidence. I don’t know what we'd do without Andrea!"

– Sara Lum, STartup Sioux Falls

"Working with Andrea was like a breath of fresh air. What impressed us the most was her ability to understand us as clients and then capture our true spirit. Her ability to write in a way that reflected us as a company and as individuals impressed us beyond belief. Andrea truly cares, and this is what differentiates her from other copywriters."

– Dana Mooney Photography

"Andrea Van Essen has been one of 605's longest freelancers. Not only is she one of the most reliable professionals I've met, but she always jumps at an assignment, even if her plate is full. Always ahead of deadlines, she delivers a great story and angle."

– Alana Snyder, 605 Magazine

"We met with Andrea Van Essen at Queen City Bakery downtown, where she interviewed us for our article. She could not have been sweeter, not to mention patient with our verbal vomit! [Andrea] did a wonderful job capturing the heart of our business and our story."

– Sarah + Jill, Harmony House
