Sarah Kolb-Williams is the kind of freelance editor that you always hope you’ll work with—conscientious, responsive, and collaborative. Working with Sarah is always a pleasure.

She’s always prompt to reply to emails and seems to genuinely love her job, which makes her exceptionally easy to work with. Without a doubt, I will work with Sarah again.

These things are our babies. We fret, we question, we want to introduce them to the world to be loved. Thank you for understanding that at a fundamental level.
