Connect, attract, and nurture … the cornerstone for creating a thriving business of ideal clients!

Not all career coaches and resume writers are created equal—job seekers need to know what value true career experts bring to the table.

I vowed to establish credibility as a resume writing and career coaching expert.

It only took a few short years to realize what the public DIDN’T know about the “careers” industry—that it actually existed. The Career Experts was born out of my own commitment to bolstering a highly selective group of the certified career professionals (career coaches and resume writers), providing rich resources for them and our audience of job seekers, and connecting the two groups with an ultimate goal of creating a successful relationship.

My background… I first became certified through the Professional Association of Resume Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC) program in 1997 and obtained my Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) certification. I then wanted to offer career coaching, which led to earning my Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC) certification in 2002 through the The Academies program, adhering to credentialing requirements.

My many years of experience primed me to build a community of only the highest-level career professionals and to guide them toward operating thriving, well-balanced businesses.

I understand the unique challenges and characteristics inherent to being a resume writing and career coaching professional.

  • Adapting to life as a solo-preneur
  • Balancing work time and family time
  • Being efficient without becoming overwhelmed
  • Building up the confidence to charge what you’re worth
  • Marketing your business authentically to attract qualified client leads
  • Settling for draining clients who leave you mentally exhausted
  • Experiencing the feast or famine cycle in business

Have questions before joining? Here’s my online calendar—let’s schedule a time to talk so I can answer them personally.

I’ve made a commitment to serve my colleagues.

I’ve made a commitment to dedicate my professional life to serve as a supporter, resource, and marketing consultant and coach to help my colleagues avoid making the same mistakes I did running my own career service business.

For too long, I burned the midnight oil only to find myself slipping up on client work the next day and having to re-work projects. Meanwhile, the “shiny-object syndrome” led me to spend thousands of dollars on various programs while never finding the time to actually complete any of them because I was too busy trying to figure out “quick-fix” ways to attract more clients.

Having been in the industry as long as I have, seeing the topics being discussed by career groups, and knowing the struggles and challenges my colleagues face running a business out of their homes because they want be there for their families, I realized the need for a comprehensive resource network.

That’s why I created The Career Experts.
