In 30 years of writing for individuals and businesses, I’ve produced copy for a wide range of marketing and creative projects. Now more than 5,000 résumés, 1,200 advertising scripts, and assorted business proposals, marketing slicks, and newsletters into my career, I’m comfortable with most any writing project.
Although writing has always been part of the story, my path is book-ended by career services. Early in my career, I started the Denver franchise of a national résumé writing company. A year later, having demonstrated my success to corporate headquarters, I was recruited to serve as Regional Director. I ultimately supervised operations in a 5-state region of 23 offices, many of which I had launched.
After leaving Professional Résumé & Writing Service, I enjoyed a consulting and media career. Working with small business owners, I developed solutions that supported start-up operations, conquered operational challenges, and capitalized on opportunities. I left corporate media in 2008 to open my own consulting and writing practice.
Now in my 18th year of private practice and my 10th year of board service for The National Résumé Writers’ Association, I am Past President, Advisory Board Chair, a Nationally Certified Résumé Writer (NCRW), and Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE) with a specialty in LinkedIn SEO.
As the name of my company suggests, I like to create partnerships. You are the expert in your business, and I am the expert in mine. Together, we create something special. Your satisfaction is both paramount and guaranteed.
As defined on the National Résumé Writers’ Association (NRWA) website: “Nationally Certified Resume Writers (NCRW) must first prove their seniority in and commitment to the resume-writing industry by presenting the certification commission with evidence of recent training and development.
“Applicants take part in a rigorous three-part exam administered by the NRWA. Our exam, like the pre-qualifying process, is the most challenging in the industry. The only way a writer can earn the NCRW certification is by demonstrating a high level of expertise in resume strategy, business writing, grammar and punctuation, proofreading, and electronic resume preparation.
“Upon receiving their credential, NCRWs have proven themselves several times over to be the best in their field. They are consummate professionals, dedicated to upholding the highest standards in the business. NCRWs must acquire CEUs annually to maintain their certification, which keeps them on the cutting edge of this ever-changing industry.”
