"Ariel Hansen is a smart, talented writer who has mastered a variety of writing forms. And she's unfailingly professional treating people with respect, meeting deadlines and getting the details right. I'd happily work with her on any project."
— Virginia Hutchins, Features Editor, Times-News

"Ariel is a fantastic modern journalist. She understands the roots of the craft, and is equally comfortable being on the cutting edge of the information revolution. The quality of her work speaks for itself, but where Ariel distinguishes herself is in understanding the role of the self-marketed journalist. She routinely knows how to identify communities of interest and how to make her work resonate with those audiences."
— Josh Awtry, Editor, Fort Collins Coloradoan

"Ariel Hansen is a fine professional editor.  Her work for me was done quickly and efficiently with a high degree of accuracy. In her research, she creatively uncovered new information that added significantly to my project."
