"Mr. McKinney and I spent two years together working on a variety of Peace Corps projects as co-coordinators, including the PC Macedonia Social Media Committee and the Macedonia English Essay Challenge, as well as a PC-sponsored diversity-inclusion project. His unique world experience and diverse skills allow for intelligent, constructive discussion and his diligence and dynamic work ethic produce effective results."

"In 2015 I employed the services of Charles McKinney to edit my second self-published book. Charles was very thorough and provided me with feedback that was thought-provoking and relative to what I was trying to accomplish. He was professional during all of our interactions and completed the assignment on time as promised. I am in the process of completing my third book and will again enlist Charles for his editing skills as I know he will do an outstanding job."
