Sara is a fantastic writer, an absolute professional, and a pleasure to work with. My company hired her to research and write copy for a website. The deadline was so tight, nobody at my company honestly expected Sara to meet it. The day the first draft was due, she delivered what could best be described as a masterpiece. I cannot recommend Sara highly enough.Travis Lippert
