Donna Jackel is an excellent  writer. She meets deadlines and her copy is on target. She's creative and knows how to find the right sources for stories. I highly recommend her.

I know that when I give a story assignment to Donna, I'll be getting back a piece that is well-researched and insightful. She's great at tracking down relevant expert sources and also the "real people" sources that will make a topic relatable. No matter the topic, she digs her teeth in.

I really enjoyed your story. Very interesting and very complete, with a nice flow and just the right details. You did a great job, and your persistence paid off (it really adds a lot to have those patients). Thanks again—I really like this sort of story that poses a question and has that intrigue to it...-
