of We Animals Media
I hired Sarah as a project consultant to help me with the publication of my book. She has provided that and so much more - brand identification, project goal setting, outreach advice, and even editorial and design feedback on my work. She is very knowledgable, caring, organized, responsive, professional, and lovely to work with. She is a wonderful coach and cheerleader and has had a very positive impact on my business and ability to execute on my personal mission.
