As could have Nurse Ogawa.
That's a tricky one, since she's depicted as a nurse on Titan in November 2382 in Fallen Gods, but IFM has her as a doctor on Challenger in January '83 and says she transferred there "some time ago."

It just seems deeply stupid to take a well written novel and have editorial say it's not in continuity, especially when the author in question was obeying editorial instructions.
Well, as Dave said, whether a book is in continuity has nothing to do with its quality. There are plenty of superb Trek novels that aren't compatible with the current novel continuity or with one another. So you shouldn't take it as a value judgment.
