Story
Tagline
Technical resume writer / Personal branding strategist / Freelance technical copyeditor
Introduction
You know, some people really like boxes.
 
I'm not one of those people.
 
I like to solve problems in a creative way, and my whole life/career has been centered around that, whether it is for me or for the clients I serve.
 
I don't think outside of the box; to me, there is no box.
 
As a result, I bring that unique value into my work as a technical resume writer and personal branding strategist with ITtechExec & as a freelance technical copyeditor for Van Vreede Publications Services.
 
Credentials:
·       11 years of technical resume writing and personal brand messaging, helping real professionals deliver real solutions to real organizations
 
·        18 years of technical writing and editing expertise, where I have covered just about every subject in the STEM arena for every major scientific publisher
 
·        B.A. in English from the University of Maryland

·         Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) through the Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaches (PARW/CC)

·         Contributing author to Faulkner Information Services, where I cover telecoms, data networking, and call center innovations
 
·        Freelance project editor for IEEE Standards, where I provide editorial assistance in publishing guidelines for technological processes
Bragging rights
Well, I was the senior prom queen. Woohoo! But, really, all my bragging rights have to go to my amazing family. Without them, I certainly am nothing to brag about :-)
