My mission is to deliver resumes, LinkedIn profile upgrades, and executive bios that show your true value to top companies.

My industry knowledge helps me to fill-in-the-blanks between your current resume, LinkedIn profile, and executive bio and what you need to get to the next level.

I started my career with Procter & Gamble as an Engineer/Production Manager, learning not only about consumer products, but also gaining key insights into leadership and career development. 

In my early 20s, I helped P&G move its manufacturing operations from Greenville, NC to Belleville, Ontario. I lived in Canada for 3 years and managed multi-million dollar projects and operations, managing a team of 30 in my Production Manager role. After earning my MBA, I worked in strategic marketing for FedEx, setting prices and forecasting profits for Fortune 500 customers and establishing price points for a new transportation product offering.

After my time in Corporate America, I pivoted and launched my own writing/consulting business. I served as a Contributor/Analyst for The Motley Fool for 4 years and have been cited as an industry expert by major news organizations including CBS News, Yahoo Finance, MSN, LinkedIn News, and FlexJobs. I have also directly served hundreds of clients as a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW), with a focus on delivering resumes which quantify my clients' key accomplishments. 

I stay on-trend for career development best practices through my additional consulting work.  I served as an External Reader / Interviewer for Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business for 7 application seasons, evaluating 1000+ applicants on 6 continents. I also previously served as Board Connection Director for CEO Connection, connecting Mid-Market CEOs with board seats and participating in our "How to Get on a Board" Workshop. I reviewed resumes and provided career coaching as part of the PA Conference for Women and serve as Communications Chair for the PA Career Development Association (PACDA).

My proudest professional accomplishment is my involvement in saving our local pool. As Board President of the Brook Park Swim Club, I worked with our community to turn a projected $70K deficit into a surplus within 12 months, protecting this community asset for our children.

I use my insider knowledge from these organizations to produce resumes, LinkedIn profiles, and cover letters that WOW both clients and potential employers! Here are just a few testimonials:

 

Wow, this is amazing! Thank you so much for your insight, knowledge and help.  I love it.  This was a huge amount of work for you - I really appreciate it.  It is invaluable to my pursuit of this opportunity.

- President/CEO of a regional bank

I am very impressed with the resume that you developed…..I had to double check the name at the top of the resume to see if it was really me that you were describing (smile)!!! 

- Healthcare Executive with 20+ years of experience

When I read it I thought "wow, that person has done a lot."  Then when I realized it was my experience, it was hard not to sit back and realize how much my previous resume would have undersold my experience and abilities.

- Corporate Executive with 10 years of experience

Wow - this is amazing!  I guess that's why you get paid to write resumes and I don't :-) This is a great document!..... This is a work of art!
