The company: I started AAA Targeted Writing and Coaching in 2004 to provide a different kind of service. Many resume companies focus on selling packages, which lets them increase the value of each transaction. I follow a business model that lets you know the price of each service that will be provided. Where many services ask clients to fill out a survey or send a copy of their current resume, I want to talk to clients so I can understand their career goals and potential problems. I welcome questions at any time.

Biography: My early life in Cleveland shaped how I think about work and career. I lived near four steel mills and saw how the city changed when those mills closed. My father was an electrician, and my two favorite uncles worked in factories. All three of these men grew up during the Depression and fought in WWII. When I get tired or lazy, I think of how they had to struggle and work.

I was luckier than my dad and uncles. I had the chance to go to college and develop a broad range of skills that include writing. I later taught writing while I was studying for a Ph.D. While doing that, I took a job as a Manager at a phone center. This position taught me the basics of HR, including recruiting and hiring. I am now very luck to be in a position where I can help people every day while doing what I love.
