I’ve worked with Sara for

I’ve worked with Sara for two projects now. She has a wonderful sense of story and an eye for detail. She’s also shone a spotlight on verbal tics I didn’t know I had, thus helping strengthen my writing. What’s more, she was able to accommodate my ridiculous time constraints. I highly recommend her.
