Emma is professional and courteous at all times. As a first time writer I have had lots of questions about what I need to be doing at what time. She has simply been amazing and patient with me. Emma always got back to me quickly. I on the other hand, held up the progress by not being ready for her! Thank you Emma for sticking with me and helping my dream come true!
