How I help
Attorney ■ 6X Certified Resume Writer & Career Coach for Attorneys, Executives, & C-Level Leaders ■ Featured & Published in 75+ Major Media Outlets ■ Rated the #1 Resume Expert by ■ Recipient of 10+ Awards for Resume & Career Writing ■ Keynote Speaker

I create powerful career and personal brands for top business leaders, attorneys, and executives and provide high-impact content writing for corporations and major publications like Inc. Magazine. Additionally, I maintain a global speaking presence. My powerful and unique background helps me to better understand what makes a great resume, a robust LinkedIn profile, and branded content for publications. After graduating from a top 100 law school with honors in legal writing, I taught college writing courses for 7 years and simultaneously practiced law for nearly 12 years (litigation and appeals) at top-tier law firms and at a Fortune 200 company. My company name, The Writing Guru®, started off as a nickname due to my professional writing skills and has since become my trademarked brand. I left practicing law to pursue my writing dreams and the business full-time.
