An Awesome Company I Edit For


Below is a press release from an awe­some com­pany I copy­edit for! (Unfor­tu­nately, the for­mat­ting gets a lit­tle glitched when I place it in Word­Press.) They held an Annual Meet­ing at the end of April, and I would have LOVED to be able to attend, but it wasn’t fea­si­ble. The video clips and pho­tos, how­ever, show how much fun they had together, and give you a taste of what great peo­ple I get to work with — albeit remotely!(Oh, and I copy­edited this press release, too!)

Upon accept­ing the award, Isom said that she is “so proud to see how much the com­pany has grown and [is] hon­ored to work with such an inspi­ra­tional and devoted group of peo­ple, with­out whom none of this would’ve been possible.”

This company-wide meet­ing is sure to be the first of many to come as IGS aims to grow expo­nen­tially each year.

Con­tinue to believe in IGS… Together, we’ll go far.” —Towan Isom, Pres­i­dent & CEO
