Your resume has a crucial job to do.
To break free from the competition. To wrangle your career history into a clear, succinct brand. To stop employers and recruiters in their tracks, and compel them to call you right away.
This goes for LinkedIn, too.
Think about the impression you’re trying to make. Consider the value you offer: your high-performance track record, your push-the-envelope accomplishments, your ability to empower teams. Your vision. Your pragmatism. Your fierce point of view.
Whether you’re a CEO exploring board opportunities, a senior executive changing careers, or a leader rising to executive ranks, I can help you reach that next level by infusing energy, clarity, and originality into your resume and LinkedIn profile.
Over the past 15 years, I’ve helped 5,000+ executives land new positions and board seats with Fortune 500, nonprofit, and start-up organizations around the world.
Many of my clients secure interviews and job offers within days or weeks of receiving their new documents. This is quite a feat, particularly since the average search can last up to 12 months, and executive searches often extend twice as long.

Resume writing that’s a bit different.
Before I became an executive resume writer, when I worked for a recruiter, I screened hundreds of resumes each day. Hour by hour, document by document, almost all of them were exactly alike.
However, once in a while I came across a resume with a heartbeat. One with energy, authenticity, a real human voice. Every time this happened—every single time—my boss and I stopped cold. We immediately called the job candidate to schedule a meeting.
Now that I’m writing the resumes, it’s my job to make employers and recruiters stop and take notice. I do it by asking the right questions, distilling information, and drawing on years of experience as a professional resume writer with an affection for great writing. In addition to showcasing your achievements through concise, powerful metrics, I infuse a touch of personality into your documents so you can land a new position, increase your salary, and be yourself at the same time.
I develop every document individually—thoughtfully—to create a highly customized, razor-sharp presentation that gives you a competitive edge in job opportunities and salary negotiations.
