It's been my honor and pleasure to work with a diversity of people on a wide variety of projects over my 20-plus years as a writer and editor. I'm honored to share some of the recommendations I've received for my work.
Annie has created a unique and powerful brand in V Magazine for Women - I call it the magazine for the thinking woman of central Virginia. The content of each month's issue is fresh and engaging, with great stories about women from all walks of life. I learn something new every month. Annie's also fiercely loyal to her advertisers, and is always looking for new ways to deliver additional value to the supporters of V Magazine. The magazine is a great example of what 'local media' can be, at its very best.

Annie is a communications professional I have come to admire. She has demonstrated repeatedly that her key objective is to contribute socially by telling important, undiscovered stories with integrity and heart. I was especially amazed the time I heard she was collaborating with a competitor publication to tell a critical health care story. She knew more exposure was of greater value to the community. This woman is definitely a standout!
Julie Sulik, Communications & PR Coordinator at Fan Free Clinic
I have had the true pleasure of working with Annie Tobey on many projects over the past few years from writing, to event implementation, to radio show guest. Each encounter has been both a pleasure and a grand success. Annie's wit and wisdom comes naturally both in front of an audience and 'back of house' as well. She is a gifted professional and I look forward to many other exciting opportunities to work together!

Let me say how impressed I was with Ms. Tobey’s editing; her efforts elevated the quality of the story considerably. The story has been trimmed substantially, with several pages and sentences deleted, tightening up the narrative.
I have had many editors as English is my second language, but I love Annie’s editing style. Not only she is thorough in her editing process, she explained to me the editing she suggested, helping me to learn and grow from the experience. I keep her original editing as a learning tool.

Annie Tobey is great editor because she has the technical skills of a wordsmith and has the qualities of a good leader and journalist. She is positive and respects the writer. She edits in the writer’s voice and knows how to make others’ ideas and copy better. Lastly, although she is constantly developing the vision of the magazine, she stays true to its core, which is all about women.
Jennifer Drummond, freelance writer
Annie was a great mentor and editor for me. She taught me the skills I needed to become a successful freelance writer, bringing me into the business of publishing a small magazine as an intern and then continuing to work with me as I began my writing career. She communicated well via email and during our meetings at the office, and was always willing to help me out or give constructive editorial criticism. I look forward to working with her in the future!
Natalie Mesnard, intern at V Magazine for Women
Writer, Researcher, & Critical Thinker
Annie has worked for me as a professional writer and researcher for various philosophical and technical projects. I’ve hired her for freelance work several times over the years because she is conscientious, responsible, has a great work ethic, does excellent quality work and above all, has the highest of integrity.
I am currently using her on a fascinating project researching the history of various constitutional forms of government, on research projects for the advocacy of individual rights, and on political advocacy initiatives, all targeted to explore the nature and importance of individual rights and their role in making freedom possible. I consider her a valuable asset.

Writer & Producer for Employee Training & Development Materials
Annie's work was known to me before I knew Annie. Her excellent writing and editing skills provided a large body of materials for the International Training Corporation--materials that I used with clients. Once I met Annie, I found an even larger collection of published books written by Annie that are still marketed internationally by SHRM, Society for Human Resouce Management. Her skills produced excellent resources on timeless subjects. As Co-Editor and writer for V Magazine, Annie has demonstrated her abiility to select timely topics that capture the interest of the readers. Her keen insight into issues women face have developed a wide readership and a popular forum to highlight strong local women and their accomplishments. Only recently did I find Pleasant Living Magazine [where Annie served as associate editor], a charming portrayal of the laid-back Chesapeake Bay lifestyle. Annie continues to be not only an excellent, interesting writer, but a prolific producer as well!
Annie was one of the editors who participated in my media familiarization tour to Loudoun County a couple of years ago. We got on immediately and Annie was an integral part of the success of the tour. On her return to Richmond, Annie wrote a multi-page online article about the culinary treasures of Loudoun County with wonderful photography, followed by a multi-page print article in V Magazine for Women. We have stayed in contact ever since. Annie is an absolute delight to work with, an ultimate professional and great writer. I highly recommend her work and look forward to working with her on a feature again.
Chris Geno, Public Relations, Media Relations and Social Media Marketing Consultant, President, Geno Communications
Annie was brought in to provide a motivational/educational talk to about 100 very high energy professional women at a Network of Enterprising Women luncheon this month. Annie did a great job of capturing and maintaining everyone's attention, making everyone laugh, and teaching them valuable information about communication. I highly recommend Annie as a speaker for any group that wants a great quality presentation.
