I hold the Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and Online Job Search & Reputation Management credential in addition to my Master's degree in Higher Education and Student Affairs (M.S.Ed). I am an ‘Ask the Experts’ contributor for the National Resume Writers’ Association and board member for the Career Development Professionals of Indiana.

My career journey has been anything but straight, nevertheless, my passion for the last decade has been connecting people to their passion. A native Hoosier and enthusiast of antiques and old homes, I am driven by my faith, family, dark chocolate and my morning cup of coffee.

I felt clueless and inadequate to write a professional resume. I didn’t know how to begin. Meg had no fear. My favorite part was the personal coaching. Meg is confident, professional, timely and knowledgeable. I feel prepared to begin submitting my resume after working with Meg.

Meg is extremely interested in learning about you as a person and not just finding out details to complete the service (although it was accomplished professionally and in detail).

It all started when...

I sat down as an overwhelmed high school student with my Dad to write my first resume. His guidance was simple. It was a Q & A about an elephant and eating habits:"How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time."

Since that first sit down, I've written many resumes with the same method. I use my utensils carefully in crafting resumes: attentiveness to detail, packing a punch with keywords, and telling career success stories with care and creativity. My goal is to fill up on elephant so you can be fulfilled in life.
