Comments from recent clients include:

  • “Do not underestimate the impact of working with Abbie Goldberg. After slogging through paper after paper on my own, Abbie gave me a key piece of insight: ‘It’s hard for everyone. There’s no way around that part of writing, but there are some ways to get through it.’ With Abbie showing me some of these ways, I now find that writing is something I even enjoy sometimes.”- Joanna Scheib, UC Davis professor & The Sperm Bank of California Research Director
  • “My writing had stalled and I had lost direction. Working with Dr. Goldberg gave my work the crispness and direction it needed. The manuscript I was working on got a jump start and the PI of the study noted a marked improvement in the manuscript from my earlier drafts.  More than that, I recognized the larger impact of the work I was doing with Dr. Goldberg.  As a faculty of color, imposter syndrome is no joke.  The skills she reinforced or helped me develop gave me the confidence I needed.” – Junior faculty member at a liberal arts college
