Targeted writing and editing in environmental and agricultural sciences.


“We really appreciate Joy’s expertise in editing and knowledge of the Chicago Manual of Style. Her ability to get edited work back to us quickly really helps us meet deadlines. We look forward to working with her on future projects.”

Leslie Berman

senior project manager, Li/Saltzman Architects, PC

“I would recommend Joy to anyone who is looking for an excellent writer and strategic thinker. Joy is highly professional in keeping the task on schedule, but also diligent about accuracy and writing in an accessible and engaging style. She is easy to work with and flexible, but directed when it comes to getting the job done.”

Dr. Patricia Dwyer

vice president for academic affairs, Wesley College

“I contracted with Joy to produce a publication called The Woods in Your Backyard: Creating and Enhancing Natural Areas Around Your Home. Joy helped create a publication that has sold more than 6,000 copies and is the basis of a major extension program. There is little question in my mind that without Joy’s talent, patience, knowledge, project management skills, and communication skills, this project would never have been completed.”

Jonathan Kays

extension specialist, natural resources, University of Maryland Extension

“I’ve worked with Joy for almost 10 years, and she does a great job not only at writing publications but also at guiding a group through the process of preparing grants proposals. She pays close attention to the specific details required for each grant and makes sure they are covered completely. She is 100% reliable and responsible, and she has helped us achieve success many times.”

Dr. Sandy Smith

natural resources & youth extension specialist, Penn State

“Joy is TERRIFIC. Nobody at McGraw-Hill or Norton did as good a job on my other books. I am extremely grateful to her.”

Alexander Garvin

principal, AGA Public Realm Strategists, Inc.

“Joy is a consummate professional who helped us to communicate complex scientific and educational accomplishments to our diverse audiences. She has a crisp, clean style, always meets deadlines, and makes great suggestions for how to take your message to a new level. I plan to work with Joy again on our next project.”
