“Karen Macdonald is a terrific writer who understands the “language” of farming and ranching, and the Farm Credit System. We have worked with Karen for several years, and I am always confident she will deliver quality writing even when our timeline is short and demanding. She is also professional and a joy to work with. I highly recommend Karen for all types of writing projects.”
