Christine's thoroughness helped simplify some unnecessary complex language and removed punctuation and grammatical oversights. She took the time to understand the messages I was trying to convey and respectfully suggested simpler options to create greater impact.

Sabrina Greer, You've Got This, Healthy Mama
When you're in "create mode," you become so close (and attached) to the content; having Christine run her fine-tooth comb of an editorial eye over my manuscript was so valuable to find the things I couldn't - especially because she did so in such an exacting and kind, supportive manner. She brings such a valuable asset to the publishing process.
