Sally Dukes was the fourth editor of my Psy.D. dissertation, and the best one. I struggled with an advisor who was difficult to please, and finally, with Sally’s skill, talent and patience we managed to overcome his criticism and to deliver a paper that needed no corrections. Sally’s ability to simplify a thought or a paragraph, her attention to detail and her familiarity with APA requirements were priceless. She was instrumental in completing my dissertation and I cannot thank her enough!

A mysterious envelope arrived today from a master editor… I touched it held it to my heart.. sat with it on my lap.. and said, “this is the beginning of manifesting a dream.” I especially thank Sally for the thoughtful care she took to craft this piece of writing into a beautiful and professional form. I am so happy…. joy joy joy!
