It is a true joy working with Heartful Editor. Working with the Heartful Editor team has restored my faith in the positive and collaborative nature that work can and should be in professional settings, especially when it comes to the support of student success. I love the team approach, the positive feedback, the focus on students and faculty, and your true focus on HEART. This is such an amazing company, and I’m so proud to be a very small part of it. When this part-time opportunity came along, I had no idea how truly restorative it would be!
