About Me

With more than 20 years of experience serving the web-based job market, I know what it takes to create a winning résumé. As principal of Advanced Résumé Concepts, I have written more than 10,000 résumés and take pride in my ability to serve a wide range of clients in multiple industries. 


I do not use templates or subcontractors of any kind and will personally craft your résumé, from initial draft through final proof approval. This allows you to benefit directly from my first-hand experience working with job seekers at all levels, in virtually all professions.


I love what I do and have an unswerving commitment to customer satisfaction and the consistent use of best practices in résumé writing. 

Professional Affiliations

I am a member of The National Résumé Writers' Association, a nonprofit trade association. As The NRWA's president and certification chair, I played key roles in creating programs that built the organization from a regional startup in 1997 into a national entity with 300+ members.


During my tenure as The NRWA's first Certification Commission chair, I led efforts to define best practices for résumé writing. I launched an original certification program, developed the industry's first online training program, and was the driving force behind the NRWA's commitment to improving résumé writing standards through mentoring and continuing education.
