I could go into a long spiel about why you should work with me, but I think my clients do a far better job!
Editing and Writing
From Asia’s top beach getaways and accommodation, to personal reflections on teaching and travel in Asia, Carrie’s got all the bases covered. Her sites are vibrant and fun, her prose punchy and informative. Most of all, she’s one of the most driven and dedicated freelancers I know. I gladly and glowingly recommend her to anyone looking for a top-notch editor or freelance writer.” March 3, 2010 James Baron, Editor/Freelance Journalist
Carrie is our ESL Editor at Wandering Educators. She has consistently provided great articles on the ESL classroom for our readers. From her in-depth knowledge of ESL and language learning to her obvious expertise with different cultures, Carrie is an incredible teacher. Her articles on our site are consistently viewed, and are ranked high in the search engines. As well, she is an extraordinary photographer and entrepreneur. Carrie is truly a global citizen, thriving in several cultures and making the world her home. Her sites are excellent resources that are informed by the world. I’ve always been extremely impressed with Carrie’s knowledge, teaching, broad range of work, and professionalism. She’s truly one of the new global leaders in culture, social media, and exploring the world. February 28, 2010 – Dr. Jessie Voights, Publisher of Wandering Educators
Carrie (Marshall) Kellenberger is an excellent writer and editor. Her articles, on both travel destinations and activities, are insightful and full of first-hand, useful information. Her extensive knowledge of ESL teaching techniques and methodologies provide her with an excellent background for writing and editing projects related to the education field. I hired Carrie to write several articles for my websites. She submitted flawless and creative copy well before the deadlines. She has also assisted me in setting up various websites and editing articles. Her skills in social networking and promotion mean she brings “a lot to the table.” I highly recommend Carrie and her writing and editing skills. She is a innovative and detailed-oriented professional.” – October 16, 2009 – Steve Peer, CEO of Phottix Photography Accessories
Carrie and I have collaborated on a few projects for various editorial and commercial markets. She is highly focused, highly professional and talented. When I work with Carrie, I know that I’m working with a vision-driven creative who knows what it takes to get the job done.

WordPress Site Development and SEO Consulting
There should be multiple options available when it comes to defining the “type” of different ways I have worked with Carrie, gotten to know Carrie, been witness to her kindness, in every role that she plays. Her steadfast commitment and support in our community here in Taiwan, from Chairwoman of the CCCT where she not only provided Canadians endless opportunities to give back to this amazing place we live, but room to celebrate our successes and support the over 60,000 Canadians who call this island their second home. I met Carrie through a mutual friend years ago when I was studying to become a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant; she was and still is such an inspiration as a business owner, philanthropist, driven individual, not to mention our similar approach to life, and an example of someone I wholeheartedly admired in an instant.
Carrie is one of the most multifaceted and intelligent people I have ever met. Her skill set, network, knowledge, experience and willingness to help those who seek her guidance, are a short list of the assets she brings to any team; in a time where the world competes, Carrie is there to offer you an edge and solid guidance, all while cheering you on. She has been invaluable to our company building our website, optimizing our SEO, in addition to helping us build our brand on a number of social media platforms, such as Facebook and Pinterest.
She has a distinctive ability to create eye-catching graphics that both emulate and showcase our business in its entirety. Tenacity, charisma and honesty make her an amazing businesswoman, but more importantly a person who advocates for others and isn’t shy to share their struggles by providing a platform for people around the globe who suffer from chronic illness to share their own stories. In the last few years, Carrie and I have not only become an amazing team but lifelong friends. Without her support, guidance, encouragement and advice, I don’t know how many different people it would have taken to fill the shoes in which she walks. I will continue to be a student of her craft for as long as she will have me.Cassandra Brennan, RCIC, CEO of flight Path immigration – 2020-2021
As a business owner, managing a website and back-end issues/sales platforms etc is always a challenge and even though I knew how I wanted my site to run, I had no idea how to do it. Working with various editors and designers over the years was hugely frustrating because it cost loads of money for very little return. I almost gave up when I contacted Carrie. First of all, she listened to what I needed in a way that showed she wanted to meet my business needs. Her communication style was the first thing that relaxed me. I felt heard. Next, we ran a simple task list on google docs that was always carefully and fully updated as Carrie executed all my requests. I’m not a tech savvy person, more of a creative and Carrie was able to deliver the best options for me, without me even knowing what I would need. She cleaned up my site and constantly checked if I was happy with it. If there were any delays, I always got advance notice and if I had a delay, she always graciously allowed for it. At the end of our project, she assured me that if I needed anything else, she would be happy to assist. For the first time in 4 years, my site actually looks how I wanted it to look and functions really well. I’m very grateful to Carrie for showing me that tech-related projects can be executed with easy and excellence. I highly recommend Carrie to anyone who wants the stress taken off handling an effective business site.PrasHAntha Lachanna, Naked Food, Raw Chef Prish & Vegan Yumz, 2018-2021
About a year ago, Carrie (a fellow travel blogger & Taiwan based expatriate) approached me with the idea of monetizing two of my blogs, Josambro.com and Snarky Tofu through advertising and Search Engine Optimization. Within a few months, she had turned both into money-making entities, and in the process helped me to define individual characteristics for each blog (which had, pre-Carrie, offered mostly duplicate content). I recommend Carrie highly to anyone looking to bring their web presence to the next level.” May 13, 2010 – Joshua Samuel Brown, Lonely Planet authorjoshua Samuel Brown, Author and Lonely Planet Author – 2010-2021
