“We’ve worked with Michelle for a number of years. Her edits and suggestions are spot-on, and she always meets our deadlines……..AND she’s a pleasure to work with! She has great communication and updates me regularly during projects. I can hand off a document to Michelle and know that she’s on it–no micromanaging or worrying required.”
Science Information Manager, Monterey Bay Aquarium
I’ve had the true pleasure of working with Michelle for more than 15 years. Michelle has done an outstanding job directing our Monterey Bay Aquarium Press. Under her, the program has expanded its titles, won awards, and launched a substantial wholesale effort to distribute our books nationally.
Michelle has an extremely valuable combination of business and creative talents. I highly recommend Michelle.
Hank Armstrong, Vice President Communications, Monterey Bay Aquarium
I am grateful for the competent expertise Michelle provided in writing a grant for me for my rescue. I was delighted to learn that I was going to receive a grant.
Thank you, Michelle. It wouldn’t have happened without you.

I asked Michelle to create a grant for our nonprofit. She researched and found the grantor then took our documents and information and creating a winning grant proposal. Michelle is very good at writing things in a coherent and logical way. She researched how the grant needs to be written for a particular agency and then follows through. Without hesitation I recommend Michelle for grant writing or any other writing project.–Cheryl Wicks, Co-Founder Sammie’s Friends
Michelle took over the proofreading of our Annual Buyers’ Guide and Directory of Members saving the Chamber staff hours of time and the project was professionally handled and went to press in a timely manner. We will be using McKenzie Bookworks for more of our projects.— Mary Ann Mueller, Grass Valley/Nevada County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO
I used Michelle McKenzie as the editor for my psychology book. She made it into one of the best experiences I had—related to depending on someone’s expertise. She is receptive, easy to work with as well as knowledgeable about editing.

Michelle approaches her work with a very high level of competence but also excels at making projects fun. One need only look at the many wonderful books the Monterey Bay Aquarium Press has produced under her leadership to see the results. Her strong guidance and thorough understanding of the publishing industry have allowed her to consistently produce strong, award-winning titles, on time and on budget. Her ever-present sense of humor has earned her the loyalty of her many collaborators.–Dr. Randall E. Kochevar, Science Communications Manager, Monterey Bay Aquarium
