Chelsea is a pro—always dependable, detail-oriented and creative. She’s quick to grasp the details of an assignment and deliver what’s requested, and to seek clarification if she has any questions. She’s always been great with quick turn-arounds, as well as complex, long-term projects. —Lisa Ocker, former editor, Success

Working with Chelsea was a great pleasure and an honor. Her editorial skills helped push our creative department to new heights and resulted in a more effective design and a number of publishing awards. Her focus and attention to detail was key throughout the process of redeveloping and relaunching our flagship publication and her understanding of the creative and design process made every challenge easier to overcome. I have referred her to other publishing jobs in the past and will do it again without thinking twice. Eduardo Schneider, former group art director, JES Publishing

I’ve been freelance writing for The Boca Observer for a few years now and Chelsea is a true delight as an editor. She’s extremely clear in her assignments and expectations and super reasonable on deadlines. Most importantly, she polishes my work just enough that the story still retains my voice…only it’s much better! Could not be happier to call her a colleague. Beth Sobol, senior editor, E! News

It has been great getting to know Chelsea Greenwood Lassman during my time as a freelance writer for The Boca Raton Observer. Each time she assigns a story to me, it comes with clear and concise direction. She has always been professional, provides great feedback and is a pleasure to work with. Laura Downey, managing editor, Atlanta Best Media

When Chelsea worked for me, I could always count on her to pinpoint problems on everything from grammar and style to spelling and nuanced meaning. Even better, she could offer up great solutions! She is reliable and communicates clearly. I always treasured her assistance in getting out each issue of our monthly magazine. Mary Vinnedge, former managing editor, Success

One of the challenges in today’s world is working with someone who responds quickly and with well-thought-out answers. Chelsea is one of those people. We have been working together for more than two years – she as editor of the Boca Raton Observer and I as a writer. I know when I am working with Chelsea she has my back and understands the challenges that can sometimes arise during the writing process. Her ability to juggle several issues at once and assign pieces early makes it easy to meet the magazine’s deadlines. In addition, she is not one of those editors who imposes her own style on someone else’s writing. Instead, she provides valuable insight and a true appreciation for other’s work. Susan Miller, founder/president, Garton-Miller Media 

I can’t rave enough about Chelsea. She is super duper responsive. She gives easy-to-follow assignments. She gets my questions answered in a timely manner. She always gives me plenty of time to write assignments. She always keeps my voice in my writing. The questions she asks editorially are always on point. This list goes on and on. I’m lucky she took a chance on me and hired me without us ever having met. I have no idea how she does so much for the magazine without losing her cool. But she gets it all done with a smile and then some. Any publication would be lucky to benefit from her editorial prowess. Stacey Feintuch, freelance writer

Chelsea knows how to create wonderful, interesting, uplifting content for Boca Observer. As a freelance writer, I have appreciated her editing of the profiles I’ve done for her. She picks excellent subjects, gives specific directions, answers all questions quickly, and also helps resolve all dilemmas quickly. That is not an easy job, since I know she is always working on several issues at once. She is one of the best editors I have ever worked for. April Klimley, freelance writer
