NATIONAL CENTER ON DISABILITY JOURNALISM | Updated Style Guide (2018)
Amy is an editor that guides you with precision as she respects your own vision as a writer. I've never worked with anyone that inspires me as much confidence. That sense of knowing that you're in good hands allows your creativity to grow. She cares about the story as much as you do, and it's obvious that she loves working with you (otherwise she would tell you to take a hike) .
