“I have called on Rebecca Ballotta to write for Distinctly Montana magazine from time to time. She is an excellent writer on whom I can depend. At times she’s had to work on short notice and change directions if need be. She does so easily. She demonstrates skill and talent in researching and interviewing experts. Her manuscripts have always been perfectly presented. She’s very conscientious and agreeable to work with.” Valerie Harms, Editor, Distinctly Montana Magazine

“I worked with Rebecca for a little over 2 years as a test writer and peer reviewer. Since I worked as a contractor, she was my liaison with the company. She arranged test writing or peer review assignments, coordinated the paperwork, reviewed my submissions, and provided feed-back on how to improve the quality or accuracy of the submission and adhere to company and regulatory guidelines. Rebecca was one of the most organized and diligent people that I have ever worked with. She always provided all of materials in a timely and efficient manner and was an up-beat and professional teacher. She knew the guidelines inside and out and could be counted on to catch even the smallest deviation from the standards. She was a very creative, solutions-minded person, and regardless of the “quirkiness” of the situation, she always had the perfect suggestion to resolve any difficulty or work through any problem. She was very focused on what needed to be accomplished and was very professional, but she was also very personable. I was always delighted to see an email pop into my inbox from her because I knew that she would have something positive to say, some encouragement to share, or something that would make me smile for the day. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rebecca and learned so much from her. She definitely helped me improve in my role of test writer, and I will miss her positive approach to her work, her thoroughness, and her attention to detail.
I would highly recommend Rebecca and would jump at the chance to work with her again.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca Ballotta in a professional capacity for three years. I found her to be a true joy to work with. I am a college professor and have written and seen many test questions throughout my career. Through Rebecca’s comments and suggestions, my test writing skills greatly improved. I look at test questions with a much more critical eye than ever before. Based on the skills I learned working with Rebecca, I now take questions from textbook test banks and rewrite them for my students. Feedback is very important when it comes to writing test questions, and Rebecca was always prompt in reviewing my work and getting back to me with comments. She was always very professional with her critiques, and never once made me feel like she was criticizing my work. Through our give-and-take, I feel we produced excellent test questions. Recently I have done test writing work for some book publishers so I have dealt with editors other than Rebecca. I can say without a doubt that Rebecca was the editor who paid the most attention to detail and who challenged me the most as a test writer. I was often amazed at how, with her help, an average test question could be reworded into an excellent question. Clearly, I have great respect for Rebecca’s writing and editing skills. But her interpersonal skills are just as impressive to me. I know that at times Rebecca was juggling many projects with several test writers, but she was always prompt with her responses to me. She never missed a deadline. If she said it was going to be done by a certain date, it was done by that date. I was always treated fairly and professionally and truly enjoyed working with Rebecca. I recommend her with total confidence.”

“Rebecca Ballotta has been my supervisor on many writing projects for several years. Rebecca was always concise as to what was expected of me when she offered projects, including: the course length, the number of items to be prepared, and the deadline. Further, she was careful to provide me with the Company’s most recently revised Writer’s Guidelines (which she co-wrote). I always knew her expectations before 1 committed to a project. Then, from commitment to completion, Rebecca kept me apprised of the project’s status. I appreciated Rebecca’s professionalism and thoroughness on every project we worked on together. It is quite impressive that she is so careful with details. She even noticed when I used two spaces between sentences instead of the Guideline’s standard of one space. Conversely, Rebecca has a strong ability to pull back from the details and see the material in the big picture. She certainly kept me on track with everything I agreed to do; she did it without compromising the Company’s product yet she did it with respect and courtesy. When I encountered obstacles, she resolved them promptly. When I was done, she thanked me. Rebecca is a critical thinker. She adheres to standards, yet understands the evolving nature of writing, the shifting course of internet-provided continuing education, and the challenging nature of public accounting. I always appreciated Rebecca’s ability to motivate me to do my best for her. It has been my good fortune to be associated with her.” Jane A. Nolan, CPA LLC

“Rebecca prepared the content for my new business’s website. She did a fantastic job understanding my goals and objectives of the website, doing the research, and making it happen. Rebecca listens and knows how to ask and phrase questions to get to the heart of what is required to communicate the story and message. The content she developed was amazing.

“I also worked with Rebecca regarding her writing an article to be published in At Home about a house for which I managed the build in Bear Canyon [“Tranquil Retreat”]. Rebecca met with the owner of the house to set the direction of the article then proceeded to interview the owner. Rebecca did a wonderful job understanding the owner’s perspective and writing an article efficiently with no revisions required. She asked very probing questions, used the owner’s time effectively, and listened and was able to communicate the owner’s story. Both I and the owner were very pleased with the article and how quickly she produced the final product.

“Rebecca is a great listener, efficient and effective writer, great researcher, is a joy to work with and never misses a deadline or budget. I would recommend Rebecca with the highest of praise. She is a wonderful story teller!” David Klasson, Owner, Klasson Services
