Writer & Editor

Client Feedback

Andrea Kott writes with heart, intelligence, and a graceful turn of phrase that makes her work a joy to read. Over the years, I hired her to write numerous alumni profiles and human interest stories for a university magazine. She has a knack for spotting the juicy bits in a potential story—the parts that anyone with a beating heart would love to read—and an engaging way with her interview subjects that turns them into her storytelling partners. My heavy editing hand was often idle on Andrea’s stories—they were that good right from the first draft. ––Donna Moriarty, MPH, Director for College Relations, College of Mount Saint Vincent

Andrea is a terrific writer and editor. She listens to what the client wants, offers her thoughts and opinions, and delivers on time. She is very diligent and conscientious. She will immerse herself in a new topic area to ensure she understands it. Her writing is clear and uses language appropriate for the target audience. It is very important to her that the client is satisfied and that the work has meaning and is beneficial. ––Diane Gross, MPH, National Director of Program Development, S.L.E. Lupus Foundation

Andrea Kott is a consummate professional: talented and endlessly hard working. Her writing and editing skills are of the highest caliber, and, for her, a deadline is akin to a sacred vow. Of almost equal value to her invaluable work ethic is the fact that she always made me laugh…a lot. —Marcy Gray, Executive Director, Pleasantville Community Synagogue

Andrea Kott, a former colleague whom I’ve known for almost 25 years, has a remarkable ability to take almost any therapeutic area—from cardiovascular disease to cancer—and uncover a compelling narrative that puts patient and provider into a real-world perspective that captures the reader. ––Nick Zittell, Vice President, Editorial Director, Practicing Clinicians Exchange

Andrea worked for me in the Communications Department at Hudson Riverkeeper. She created marketing copy, press releases and articles for our website and journal. Andrea’s ability to understand scientific material and write about it in a manner that the layperson can understand was very useful. She was able to quickly turn around high quality work on complex topics and work with a variety of sources and editors. Above all, Andrea is highly conscientious about her work. She always delivers and often goes above and beyond, anticipating new opportunities and contributing fresh ideas to the team. —Tracy Brown, Director, Western Long Island Sound at Connecticut Fund for the Environment/Save the Sound

Andrea is a very talented editor and writer. She is creative, diligent, and smart. Andrea is very flexible and can tackle just about any topic. She has especially deep expertise in the fields of health, medicine, and women’s reproductive issues. Andrea is a good reporter—she knows how to dig for information—and she is able to work both collaboratively and independently. I highly recommend Andrea for any editorial project you may have. —Nelly Edmondson, Writer/Editor
