From the Author

“Productive Alternatives, Inc. has contracted with Joy Minion to assist us with the updating and editing of several of our Agency operating manuals. This is a task that is difficult and time-consuming for us, but a very necessary issue. We found that Joy does very thorough and accurate work, and also completed this task in a timely manner, as we had some very specific timelines to meet on this project. I would recommend her work to anyone who needs these kinds of services.”
