As a health editor, I love having Leslie as a freelance writer on our team. She has a talent for writing compelling people profiles. Her style is engaging, and the essence of the people she interviews shines through. – Tanya Bricking Leach, Patient Experiences Editor, GoodRx

Leslie and I have worked together so far on two different quick-turn projects. Both required frequent collaboration with large teams due to deliverables being interconnected. She was able to onboard to both projects quickly and deftly. The team and the clients praised her writing and I enjoyed her professionalism, communication, and her delivering on time to meet tight deadlines. I look forward to working with her on other projects and highly recommend her to other project/program managers and anyone looking for her expertise. –  Karlie Church, Program Manager, Accenture

I am a freelance editor that helps create content for a variety of websites, including Ancestry. Leslie was one of my regular writers during the 4+ years that I managed this account for an external agency. Leslie was a delightful writer to work with. She consistently delivered timely, accurate, and engaging content that met my client’s specs. Leslie’s experience with this account predated my becoming the managing editor by about 4 years! The fact that she wrote for them for 8+ years is a testament to her skill, dedication, accuracy, and ability to run with whatever was needed of her. I would recommend Leslie without reservation if you need a writer who is engaging, professional, versatile, and committed to the accuracy and sourcing of what she delivers. – Lisa Farino, Editor, Contently

I hired Leslie for a freelance white paper writing project on the recommendation of a trusted former colleague—and she did not disappoint! I needed a strong writer with both journalism and content marketing experience, someone who could do the tough legwork of finding and interviewing relevant sources, as well as construct a compelling narrative that made sense of a complex topic and provide actionable takeaways for the foodservice operators it’s meant to serve. Leslie went out of her way to pound the pavement on the sourcing front, as several fell through at the last minute, and in the end, she was game to pivot when we had to take a different approach. She was always responsive and honest in her communication, and she asked smart questions to get to the heart of what I (and my client) needed for this piece. It was a pleasure working with Leslie, and I’ll most certainly recruit her for my tougher writing projects in the future. – Marla Clark, Vice President of Content Strategy, The Food Group

I hired Leslie as our Honolulu local expert for a travel-related project for one of the world’s largest tech companies. For her professionalism, her creativity and the depth and the breadth of her local knowledge she is second-to-none, and I would recommend her without hesitation. – Matt Chesterton, Project Manager, EnVeritas Group

From the first time Leslie interviewed me for an article in the Hawaiian Airlines in-flight magazine Hana Hou, I knew she had a special talent. We sat down for a short time and she was all business. No wasting of time. When I saw the story, I was floored. She got so much information out of me in such a short time and it was expressed accurately and in just the right tone. Just the right tone. That’s a luxury in many cases. – Richard Ha, Owner, Hamakua Springs Country Farms

Shortly after reading a wonderful article Leslie Lang had written for Hana Hou! magazine on Akiko’s Buddhist Bed & Breakfast, I coincidentally met her at that very same B&B in Wailea. There, Leslie learned from the B&B’s proprietor about a solo trek I had made from Laupahoehoe Point to the summit of Mauna Kea. It must have made an impact, because she wrote an excellent account of it for the Hawaii Island Journal. Noted biologist, naturalist and writer, P. Quentin Tomich, wrote a follow-up story published in the Hamakua Times based largely on Leslie’s detailed account. I credit her vision and perception for creating such a compelling story after a brief, chance encounter with a total stranger. I now count myself as a fan of her original stories and biographical sketches. – Mark Glick, Chief Energy Officer, State of Hawaii

I’ve really enjoyed working with Leslie Lang. Her writing has been so spot-on for us that the final products and what she delivers as “first drafts” are usually close to identical. Her project communication is clear and timely, and her understanding of Hawaiian orthography as well as Hawai‘i Island language and cultural nuances were essential to our projects. Looking forward to working with her on another project soon. – Aaron Landry, Director of Market Engagement, Olomana Loomis

Leslie, I’m only halfway through, but I just want to say, you are amazing! I had done a drop of research to be sure there’d be enough info out there for you. But I’m amazed at all that you found. This is such a fun article. – Rasa Fournier, Editor, Bank of Hawaii

Leslie was a pleasure to speak with in an interview. She captured the essence and was easy to talk to. I was satisfied with the article she produced. Leslie has also written books which I am familiar with. She is talented, savvy, and a delightful person to interact with. – Peter Giles, Executive Director, Imiloa Astronomy Center
