"Dolores is a true veteran professional. She pitches interesting stories, turns her work in cleanly and on time, and is always willing to further polish her pieces. She's especially knowledgeable about the metro Phoenix arts community, and her regular artist profiles in PHOENIX magazine are always fun reads. I would recommend Dolores to editors seeking experienced writers who can both turn a clever phrase and turn work in on time.Dolores is a true veteran professional.

"Dolores has completed numerous articles for me in my role as Editor of New Homes and Living Well, both monthly publications in The Arizona Republic. Her work is always on-time and of high quality. I look forward to continuing to work with her and would recommend her to others in similar work-situations.”

“When Dolores worked with me for a story I was struck by how artfully she digs and questions until she finds the extraordinary in the ordinary and then illuminates it with her writing.
She is one of those rare people who looks at the world a little differently and finds humor in the humdrum and the really-real under the show and shine.”

“Working with Dolores makes my job easier. She’s that kind of writer. We have hired her on several occasions to pursue high-profile Valley newsmakers, secure an interview with them and write a compelling Q+A story for Phoenix’s leading, 45-year-old independent monthly. We’re a satisfied customer, and I won’t hesitate to work with Dolores on future assignments for Phoenix Magazine”

"Dolores is a real-life Mary Richards (from "The Mary Tyler Moore Show"). Her positive attitude never wanes, and her sunny disposition makes it worth coming to work. What people don't see, however, is how hard she works. Whoever said "never let 'em see you sweat" must have had Dolores in mind. No one outhustles her -- no one! Yet she does so with a smile on her face and a song in her heart. She always makes time for others, regardless of the pressure she is under, and she is able to see the good in everyone. Her genius is that she makes you feel that nothing could be more important than you."

"Dolores developed an entire campaign to promote the opening of the McClelland Irish Library. Her journalism experience helped her to get additional coverage for stories and her broadcast background helped her to work with producers, television and radio. Dolores' work helped to bring greater awarness of the library to the metropolitan Phoenix area. Her extensive contacts in the industry and her ability to develop story angles helped us secure more than $53,000 in print radio and broadcasting coverage during the inital campaign for the library.
Dolores also helped with script writing for a video and wrote and edited all of the text for our website at azirishlibrary.org.
Dolores works very independently, she meets deadlines, and she strives to produce quality work. I would highly recommend her for publicity and webside text writing or any other journalism positions."
