Bragging Rights: I live in beautiful Monterey with my husband, have a gorgeous daughter who is a charismatic College Professor and am the evil-step-mother (just kidding about the ‘evil’ part) of a very handsome and talented Football Coach. My specialty is providing advice on job hunt strategies, writing tailored resume products, all from an office that overlooks the Monterey Bay. Just give me Yoga, Chocolate, & Kona Coffee and I’m good to go! Big Fan of humor, movies, books, & sports,

Background: I have over 17 years of experience as an IT Recruiter and 7 years as a Technical and Marketing Writer. As an IT recruiter, I constantly evaluated, critiqued, wrote, and rewrote thousands of resumes. As a technical and marketing writer, I wrote technical manuals and collateral marketing material about surgical and diagnostic medical lasers.

My constant sidekick is a small messenger bag holding a tablet bookmarked with electronic articles about resumes and job hunting, a hard copy of The Gregg Reference Manual, and resources on how to find a Career Coach. I am a current member of the National Resume Writers’ Association.
