In this game of career building, we need copilots. Cheerleaders. Mentors. Coaches. In working with me, we create plans of actions with intention to help you move forward in ways that serve your personal and professional goals. Writing is a process. So is changing your career, especially if you've been in one for a good long while or if you've shifted perspective for what you've recently trained for. I can help you get through those challenging times so that you build good habits and the confidence needed to take the necessary steps in your career (and most importantly, on your résumé).
My core values are to effect change and be of service to others.
I am a sociologist who has specialized in social psychology and have a critical understanding of how social systems work and how people navigate those systems. With a deep understanding that shifting the course of your career can be daunting, my hands-on and experiential approach to crafting your Career Toolbox includes redesigning your résumé and cover letter, helping you prepare for successful interviews, rethinking your skill set, and helping you to understand industry needs. Whether you're a grad student facing the mystery of "what's next?", a seasoned academic wanting to try something new, a single parent trying to find something that will fit your lifestyle enabling more time with your kid(s), or even just if you're starting out, work with me to put your best self forward. I bring experience and proven strategies that will assist you in taking that next best step in your career.
It can be difficult to make the right decision, and we're all aces at self-doubt. You just might find that working with a résumé coach will help you solidify what you likely already know, and simply refocus and repurpose your goals.
