I’ve been a resume writer since 2008. People always asked me to review their resumes and give them feedback. I’d get out my red pen, mark up the paper, and give it back to them with my thoughts. Then, one day, someone asked me how much I would charge to fix her resume. I had NO IDEA. I fixed her resume and she bought me dinner–it was a win-win!
It was then I realized that I could make a living doing something I loved…helping people gain confidence in their job search through a well-written resume and cover letter. Who knew I could actually get paid to write?! What a concept.
My favorite part of my job is when one of my clients says that they look so good on paper that they would hire themselves. That’s the goal. Once you have that confidence, your job search becomes a whole lot easier.
When I’m not writing resumes, you might find me helping my son with his pigs, tending to my chickens, riding our John Deere Gator, snowmobiling, or working on our maple syrup operation.
My favorite color is
My best vacation
I can't have my food touch (divided plates are my BFF)
I have my name plate from my first job as a bank teller
My nickname in school was Heather Feather
If I can make a report longer

I am very picky about pens and still handwrite a LOT of things
