As the owner and operator of JobStars USA, my daily commitment is ensuring the delivery of top notch career services for every valued client.

Each day, I take pride in living the life of a Career Services practitioner. This means empathizing with each individual client by stepping into their shoes and leading the process of developing ATS-friendly documents that communicate context, highlight achievements, and provide an accurate portrayal. No simple task!

I arrived here after many years of working and learning. My first exposure to the job search world came in 2005, after finishing undergraduate studies at KU, when I entered the corporate world at CB where I held multiple job titles across sales, marketing, and operations. Managing “cbResume” from 2009 to 2011 was my first exposure to the Resume Writing world. It captured my interest immediately! While working full-time, I attended MBA classes at RU. Shortly after earning an MBA in Marketing – I chose to quit my comfortable corporate job and venture into the unknown.

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. Concurrently, I started building JobStars which launched January 2013. Building a business for the first time was daunting but exciting! Creating a website, learning SEO, building a client portal, and delivering quality services. I started putting the pieces together and knew I found my professional calling.

Today, I am centrally involved in the delivery of JobStars USA services. This includes personally working on many projects myself, as well as leading a small team of Resume Writers and Career Coaches to deliver interview-winning Resumes, Cover Letters, LinkedIn profiles, and Career Coaching services.
