Mary Casey-Baker, Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington:

“Rhonda is a joy to work with. She is professional, responsive, and incredibly detailed in her editing. She asks pointed questions and has a unique sense of how to push authors to bring their publications to a greater level of depth.” 


Eric Rosand, President, Prevention Project:

"Rhonda has an agile mind and discerning eye that goes beyond merely cleaning up the prose; she enhances the copy without changing the writer's intended meaning and meets short deadlines."


Bea Boccalandro, President, VeraWorks:

“Rhonda was exactly the editor I needed. Come to think of it, she’s what any writer needs. Her feedback helped me improve the overarching narrative of the book. Her critical eye identified the parts that were falling flat. And her impeccable grammar polished my writing into much sharper storytelling. She’s simply superb. I highly recommend her.”


Helena P. Schrader, Ph.D. (winner of 17 literary awards):

“Since I discovered Rhonda, I have learned what a really great editor is. Rhonda approaches her task with intelligence and sensitivity, using her skills to enhance the original work. She is a superb professional who can meet short deadlines and provides sound feedback beyond commas and spelling. It is a pleasure working with her, and I hope to work with her on all my future projects.”


Christina Nemr, Director, Park Advisors:

“Rhonda was a delight to work with. She brought a keen eye for detail and an attentiveness to consistency that elevated the quality of a dense research report. Throughout the process, she was highly communicative and always delivered before the deadline. Her diligence and strong work ethic made for easy and productive collaboration.
