I am a Certified Professional Résumé Writer (CPRW) with a background in professional writing, marketing and public relations. I have three years’ experience creating and reviewing résumés professionally, eight years as my friends’ go-to for proofing and improving their résumés for free, and over a decade searching for the perfect job on my own. I’ve learned a lot along the way and want to help you position yourself for your dream job!
When you work with me, you get more than a polished, professional résumé package that will help you rise to the top of the applicant pool, (although you’ll get that, too). You’ll be working with someone who is passionate about helping you find a job or career you love, one that will allow you to live your best life.

letter for a 2nd position)

Custom Package – Your needs are not one-size fits all. Maybe you need some help to get your LinkedIn profile popping and a session to figure out job searching.

Or maybe you are too intimidated to negotiate for what you deserve or you have a hard time transitioning to new jobs. Let’s discuss your needs, and I’ll provide you a customized quote we both feel excited about.
