To develop an authentic, compelling brand for you we need to get personal.  After all, we're talking about your life here.  Done well, building or rebuilding your personal brand is intimate work.  With that in mind, you deserve to know a bit about me.  

As a Certified Professional Resume Writer and a Professional in Human Resources, I have the credentials you deserve.  With over 25 years' experience in Human Resources and Organizational Development, I know what the world looks like from the hiring & firing side of the desk. I can help take your career to the next level, whether that is entering the market, re-inventing yourself mid-career, recovering from a setback or navigating the murky waters of being an executive in transition. With a track record of success in both profit and nonprofit arenas, I understand what an organization is looking for in a candidate.

Finally, I have been on the other side of the proverbial pink slip; I know personally what it's like to be a candidate. I have felt that fear. Maybe you feel the same way. Whether through success stories or lessons learned, I want to share what myself and others have found to move forward again. This unique combination of empathy, expertise and experience is one you will not find in many other providers.

I am passionate about helping people in transition.  I write a career transition column for "The Examiner," conduct job readiness workshops, speak at networking events and support a number of community-based organizations with similar missions.  When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends in the Greater Philadelphia area.
