My first full-time day job as a writer came in the form of technical writing project at The Vanguard Group.

I came to regard Sarah James as a mentor, and really enjoyed my time working with her.

…Judy documented procedures for each specific process in the Defined Benefit area. Her attention to detail, thoroughness, and discipline enabled her to create a quality manual for an important client. We were so pleased with her work that we extended her assignment so that she could compose a generic manual.
