Career Thought Leaders Consortium
I wear a lot of “hats” in the resume/careers field, having honed my expertise during a long career as a resume writer, career consultant, speaker, author, and trainer.
Executive resume writing is truly my expertise and my passion! I work with executive clients worldwide, creating highly strategic career marketing documents that communicate credibility, expertise, and value. And, as founder and director of Resume Writing Academy, I have guided dozens of professionals through a rigorous training and testing program to sharpen their strategic thinking and writing skills to produce best-in-class resumes.
Continuing the trend of disseminating knowledge, I have written more than 20 books on resumes and career management and frequently deliver in-person and webcast presentations to industry professionals and job seekers. My strength is breaking down a complex subject into easily digestible “bites” that are immediately applicable to diverse audiences.

- Master Resume Writer (MRW)
- Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW)
