Today, I am proud to call myself the founder, owner, and operator of JobStars USA.

I arrived here after many years of working and learning. My first exposure to job seekers came in 2005, after finishing undergraduate studies at KU, when I started working at CareerBuilder. This was a time period of massive disruption! As the new digital landscape emerged, newspaper job ads were being replaced by digital job ads – the entire recruitment / job search process was changing drastically.

While working there, I did a few different things – including sales, marketing, and operations. Managing the company’s (now defunct) service “cbResume” was my first real exposure to the Resume Writing world. It captured my interest immediately. While working, I also attended MBA classes at RU. Shortly after earning an MBA in Marketing, at age 28 – I chose to quit my comfortable, good-paying corporate job.

Now what!?

I knew I had an entrepreneurial itch to scratch. But how? I had a lifelong gift for writing, but I’d never actually written a Resume.  So, I started working as a freelance Resume Writer. Making near minimum-wage, I lived the life of a Resume Writer, taking on project after project. I supported myself for several years like this. Gradually, I mastered the art by doing 5,000+ projects on the front-lines as a Resume Writer.

Concurrently, I started building JobStars with modest ambitions for helping local job seekers achieve their goals. JobStars.com launched officially in January 2013. Building a business for the first time was daunting, but also exciting and energizing. Launching a website, creating a services menu, figuring out taxes, learning SEO, and consistently delivering quality services. I started putting the pieces and found my true calling.

My daily commitment is to ensure the delivery of top notch Career Services for every valued JobStars client.
