Biography & Credentials
Originally from California, I graduated from the University of San Diego with a Bachelor's Degree in English. Writing has always been my passion. I worked for the publishing giant, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, for 10 years prior to my move to New England.
My professional experience includes work in the recruiting industry where I gained insight into the type of resume that makes a hiring manager stand up and take notice.
Over the course of my career, I have also worked as a career manager and a career advisor. Helping clients to achieve a powerful resume and to find the job of their dreams is my goal.
I have earned the hallmark credential for resume writers, CPRW -- Certified Professional Resume Writer. I belong to many professional affiliations such as the Society for Human Resource Managers. I am a regular contributor to LinkedIn discussions regarding hiring, the current marketplace, job strategies, and resume writing.
I look forward to collaborating with you in the creation of a great resume! Your resume is one way that you market yourself, so it is important that it look very professional and contain the key words that will cause an Applicant Tracking System to pick it up. I will put my passion for excellence and my keen insight into resume writing and career strategy to work for you!
