Denise Holden is a fantastic editor, who is amazing to work with. APNA has engaged her to  edit large and complex educational documents.

She provided concise requirements before commencing the work and a great summary of changes (the ‘what’ and ‘why’) on completion.

Denise seems to work magic on anything we give her, turning a jumble of documents into a pleasure to read.
