“While I was responsible for corporate communications at a Fortune 500 company, Susan provided extraordinary writing and editing consulting on corporate magazines, speeches and annual reports. She is a quick study, extremely flexible, super smart and ultra easy to get along with. Susan relates beautifully to CEOs and people working in a warehouse. She is fast and super conscientious about meeting deadlines. She also loves technology and uses it well. She is enthusiastic about a wide variety of subjects, and leaps on a task as soon as you agree on the project. She is the best of the best!”

        Joan O’Connor

“Susan provided exceptional managerial effort on a fast-track, technical-history book. She was always quick to help, and her depth of knowledge was remarkable. To top it all off, she has a great sense of humor!”

“Susan is a phenomenal writer, editor, mentor and colleague. Her talent and passion shines through in all that she does to support a collaborative, organized, and most effective writing process. Her capacity to capture a voice that is true to an author, relevant to the subject matter they must address, and then most accessible to an audience is outstanding. I am deeply appreciative for how she guided me through the process of writing the best possible book proposal I could offer. I am grateful for how she showed me the way with care, compassion, and honest feedback and expertise. Susan is a gem to be admired for all that she brings to a project.”
