Sikana was formed in 2006 by Hilary and Val Dumitrescu. After enjoying rewarding but demanding careers in teaching and publishing, we were determined to spend as much time with our children as possible. So we decided to find a way to make a career out of full-time freelancing. Individual assignments led to bigger projects, so we invited colleagues to join us.
Ten years later, Sikana has grown to encompass more than fifty of the most talented individuals anyone could hope to work with. At Sikana, family comes first. In fact, our name pays homage to Val's two grandmothers, Sica and Ana. We are all freelancers here, so no work is ever approached with a begrudging sense of “duty.” We truly believe in the adage, “Do it with joy or don’t do it at all.” We have discovered that this approach has created a seemingly endless font of creativity! Our colleagues have developed literally thousands of stories, poems, articles, essays, test questions, and lesson plans, and no two are alike. Our clients are consistently thrilled with our product.
