What Others Are Saying
“Lisa Hall Wilson is an editor’s writer. She has a sharp eye for the facts of a story that enables her to tell it with an economy of words. She also thinks about what she sees. That blend of reporting and critical insight makes her a go to writer for me. I know I will use what I get from Lisa, and I know it will be my easiest edit of the day.”
Stephen Kennedy, Editor for Testimony
“It’s always great to receive stories written by Lisa, as she is thorough, on-time and I never have to do much editing to her stories, if any. She has the ability to get in touch with some “high-up” individuals for interviews and I always appreciate the story ideas she throws my way. We don’t always use them, due to geographical reasons, but the ones we do . . . they’re great!!”
Peter McManus, Editor & Publisher at CLN Publications
“I have worked with Lisa on several Faith Today stories. She comes up with great ideas, does her research well, and then crafts a piece that serves our readers with flair and depth.”
Karen Stiller, Senior Editor Faith Today
“Lisa is a FACEBOOK GENIUS. I send everyone to her for advice, help, questions. She is the one I trust most to teach Facebook and even have her help me manage MY pages (and I am a social media expert). She is kind, generous and the hardest working person I know. Would be LOST without her.”
Kristen Lamb, Author and Social Media Jedi Master
“Lisa is so wonderful to work with. She is innovative in her approach to problems, strategic in incorporating new technologies and excellent at strategic planning. Her leadership with various teams has been invaluable to our association. It is such a pleasure working alongside her.”
