History & Credentials


Based in Puget Sound, Olympic Résumé is one of the top-ranked career strategy firms in the United States.


As an expert practitioner in the field of career strategy, I utilize an interdisciplinary approach fusing my experience as a hiring manager (for several firms including a Fortune Global 500 corporation), a journalist, a coach, an English tutor, an editor, and a national social media campaign manager.


My methods are a fusion of my talents: management, training, creative writing, marketing, journalism, coaching, and sales. All of these skills help me create powerful and impressive deliverables that get noticed.


My customized programs are an excellent way to generate more interview opportunities and accelerate your career.

I have helped hundreds of clients over the years.


Customers appreciate my unique and unparalleled level of experience and credentials. Over the years, I have helped numerous clients who received poor advice from alleged “résumé writing professionals.” One of my personal goals is to improve the public perception of the career coaching profession.


My methodology has an excellent track record -- I have helped clients earn positions with numerous high-profile companies including Starbucks, Boeing, Expedia, Microsoft, Amazon, Nordstrom, Safeco/Liberty Mutual, and Alaska Airlines.


The process is collaborative as we write, revise, wordsmith, and develop phenomenal deliverables.

Why Your Résumé Matters


A résumé is a cogent, concise restatement of your skills, education, and core competencies.

Your résumé is the absolute most important document in your life -- it affects your income potential and defines your capabilities to the world.


The modern day résumé is a brief version of the classical concept of a curriculum vitae (Latin for "course of one's life").  


Résumés are typically used in all disciplines except medicine and academia. 

Your résumé is your most important job search tool, make sure it's sharp!


P.S. The acute accent marks in résumé are not absolutely necessary (but they look professional).
