"I have worked with Sarah in several capacities over the years, creating content for both traditional print and digital publications. She has both written for me and copy-edited my work. Most recently, I called her in a pinch to step in for a last-minute content project; the work required a quick turnaround and a willingness to hit the ground running. Sarah, as usual, executed everything in the timeliest of manners, despite the short notice and volume of copy, and was exceptionally easy to work with throughout. She was instrumental in helping us meet our deadline and keep copy flow running consistently. I cannot thank her enough for her professionalism and can-do attitude."

Julie Dugdale, freelance editor

"The nature of the business has us contacting her at all times during the day with the need for a quick turnaround. Sarah has yet to miss a deadline and typically returns corrections within the same business day. She is a joy to work with, and our team wouldn't know what to do without her."

Carrie Horn, marketing director, 5280 magazine

"Sarah is not only a talented editor, but she is also a joy to work with. Sarah played an important role in the launch of the Clyfford Still Museum's award-winning member magazine, Words On Paper. I would recommend her for any project."

Irene Weygandt, former marketing director, The Clyfford Still Museum

"For a small company like ours, it is such a benefit to have someone with Sarah's skills and experience. She is a pleasure to work with and always makes the extra effort to help us out when we need it. She has helped our content and quality get to the next level."

Megan Kendrick, senior editor, Kendrick Content

"Sarah was my invaluable assistant in the last 18 months of my seven-year stint as editor-in-chief of DNR and Menswear. Sarah displayed rare organizational skills and a meticulous eye as she performed a wide range of tasks, from handling invoices to copy editing. She also contributed occasional articles to DNR, writing with grace and polish and never missing a deadline. Beyond all that, Sarah was simply a pleasure to work with."

John Birmingham, former editor-in-chief, DNR

"If you have a job you need done, you spend a couple minutes chatting with Sarah and she does it. If you need a good idea or want to add an interesting twist to a project, just float your concerns to Sarah and she'll come up with more suggestions than you can use."

Todd Powell, former features editor, The Daily Sentinel (Grand Junction, Colo.)

"It was my pleasure to hire Sarah right out of college. She quickly became one of the most valuable and best copy editors on my staff. She is a student of the language and a true stickler for detail. She also proved to be an extraordinary writer when we moved her from our news desk to our features department, where she distinguished herself as our entertainment writer for both the print and online products. Would I hire her again? You bet I would."

Dennis Herzog, former managing editor, The Daily Sentinel (Grand Junction, Colo.)
