Professional Résumé Writing & Career Coaching Services 

Understand your value.

Convey your worth.

Reach your career destination.


Imagine waking up in the morning and being excited to go to work! How would more challenging projects, better autonomy, a company culture that aligns with your values, or a higher salary impact your life? It's all possible.


 Does this sound familiar?  


You're a motivated professional who's ready to leverage your accomplishments to earn that promotion & get a raise. 

You know you have the skills to land a great job, but you're not getting any interview requests or offers. 

You're ready for a change but it's been 10+ years since you've conducted a job search & you don't know where to start.

The job search can certainly be a struggle. Months pass by and you don't get any interviews, despite applying for loads of jobs online. You feel defeated, your confidence is shaken, and you question your worth. You ask, "Why aren't these employers seeing the value I can bring?"


What if you had a brand you were proud of? What if you had personal marketing materials that you were excited to put in front of prospective employers? What if you could walk into an interview with an "I got this" attitude?


Getting the results you want is well within your power, but you need to put in the effort...and sometimes, you simply need the right person to guide you in the right direction. Consider me your trusted navigator.

Client Testimonials

"Laura was professional and easy to talk to. I was able to transition from a career in architecture to a career in construction management with her help. She diligently recorded my past work experience through our phone conversations and researched my past projects. She used that information to tailor the resume and cover letter to help me transition to a different career path within the same industry. I was very impressed with how she made me look on paper by using the skills and knowledge that I had already possessed. I was able to land the interview with my present job within a week of working with Laura."
