Rita worked with me as editor on a book project. She came highly recommended, and her professionalism exceeded anything I anticipated. The work was copy-editing a book on math education research, an edited volume with multiple authors, and formatting according to APA and publisher’s guidelines. She provided many fundamental improvements to the printed work, including strong flowing improvements to the content, and detail-oriented as well as creative solutions to structural and stylistic issues in all aspects of this edited volume. Rapid turnaround time, not to mention patience with my own erratic schedule and organizational quirks. She served as a “service provider,” but we worked like partners.
