"Sue is great. It’s really that simple. She is a great person, asks insightful questions, is very thoughtful in her work and delivers a great product.

Chief Marketing and Experience Officer
"Maybe once in a writing career you end up working with an editor who nurtures your individual style, who coaxes the writer out of you as a potter spins clay. Sue Montgomery is one of those rare editors. Editing is about so much more than misspelled words and misplaced commas. Good editing involves finding writers and helping them grow into their voices. I dare you to work with Sue: you’ll never be the same."

"This is simple. Sue is simply GREAT! From her attention to detail as an editor to her rich observations of content, Sue is brilliant. There are just a handful of people in the digital health space that have the engagement, skills and knowledge that Sue brings to the table. She's really emerged as an essential voice for digital health. Of particular note—Sue's expertise in ethics is establishing her as one of the few thought-leaders in the complicated convergence of technology and medicine. Her passion and compassion always impress me and Sue has become my "go to" voice in this area. She's my adviser, teacher and (perhaps most importantly) my friend. She's on my list of indispensable contacts for brilliance, wit and wisdom."

"Sue is one of the best writers I’ve ever worked with. Her skill in helping me craft a message that connects and has impact keeps me coming back for more. She is professional, fast, cost-effective, and engaged at every step. She seeks to truly understand, and her technical breadth and connections are inspiring as well. It is not the job of a writer or editor to educate their client, yet Sue did that for me many times, bringing new ideas and content to my writing that helped make it more understandable and impactful. I would recommend Sue for any professional seeking help to ensure that your message connects and gets results."
