Some Words of Praise

In the world of editing, Julie is a real pro and a pleasure to partner with. Over the years, I’ve become dependent upon—and appreciate—her responsiveness, efficiency, and attention to detail.

– Elizabeth Hardy, Design 291

Julie uses her impressive journalistic skills – wonder, investigation, clarity, fidelity – to illuminate the depth, texture, and meaning of a story. Headlines grab attention; they do not break open the essence of story. Julie leads us into the soul of a story, bringing to light good and evil, hard choices, heroic acts, grace. She helps us bring the dynamic and heartfelt story of mission to light.

– Donald R. McCrabb, executive director, United States Catholic Mission Association (USCMA)
– Jem Sullivan, editor,  USCMA Mission Update

I worked with Julie at the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, and I can’t recommend her more highly. She is a superb writer and editor, with an exceptional ability to engage all types of readers in the subject matter at hand. She’s quick, thorough, and professional. She’s also adept at managing multiple projects at once. In short, you can always count on Julie to deliver an excellent editorial product on deadline and on budget. 

-Sarah Hardesty Bray, opinion editor, Inside Higher Ed

Julie helped us to edit and prepare a report for national publication.  Her professional skills made a complex report of data and tables much more readable and accessible to a broader audience.  A great asset for social science research!

-Thomas Gaunt, S.J., executive director, Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA)

Julie’s writing is both precise and elegant. When I ask her to edit something, I know that it will be done on time and with the utmost care and attention to detail. She is a delight to work with in every capacity!
