“Courtney worked with me on my professional bio as well as an essay exploring the experience of collective joy. Her editing was exactly what I needed to tighten up my writing and make it flow. I really appreciated her ability to create space and lighten the density of my work – it simply opened up and breathed after she got her hands on it. I recommend her to anyone with copy editing needs. She’s thoughtful, thorough, and capable of helping you find your voice on paper.”
