One of the best parts of my job as editor of The Parent Paper was having the opportunity to work with talented writers like Vera Lawlor. Vera brought so much to her pet column, covering issues affecting a wide variety of animal companions, that I, along with our readers, learned something interesting every month. It’s no surprise that Vera earned accolades and awards for her column. In addition to writing about pets, Vera wrote many feature stories for the magazine. She was always thorough, on time and professional. It is a pleasure working with Vera Lawlor! — Mary Vallo, former Editor, The Parent Paper

“Vera is one of my favorite writers. In producing stories for the Berkeley College website, she wrote compelling prose while distilling the essence of a topic. Even with difficult assignments, she always found a way to engage the audience and meet the deadline. She was a great asset for the team.” — Janelle Roth, former Senior Director of Web Content, Berkeley College

“Vera is an excellent writer and a consummate professional with a finely honed sense of editorial judgment. She is enthusiastic, creative, dedicated, and deadline-driven, and would be an asset to any endeavor, publication, or company. Her copy is a pleasure to read, and her attention to detail is first-rate. Her passion for her work is contagious, and she is open to all feedback and suggestions.” — Erica Dietsche, former Web Content Editor, Berkeley College
