“The joy that I felt in watching my online presence transform to be such a clear picture of who I am and what I’m capable of was immense. At every step of the process I knew exactly what to expect and at every step Kris exceeded my expectations. And the results were immediate. I am now in a new job that I absolutely love and the work that I did with Kris to hone in on my true values and what I ultimately wanted was a huge part of how I landed where I am.”
Vice President, Powerschool Group
“I had reached a point of frustration with my job search doing things the only way I knew which was filling out online application after application. When I began using the resume created by Kris, I immediately began getting results. My LinkedIn profile started getting attention as well. Finally, her instruction on job hunting and interview preparation proved to be invaluable.
I landed a job in just 4 short weeks after months of dead-end results from my efforts.”

“(Kris) transformed my out-of-date and bulky CV and turned it into an easy to read and well flowing document…I received compliments frequently on both documents during interviews. She was effective and efficient with any questions that I asked, but more importantly, she was patient, kind and thorough with her responses. The market place responded immediately and positively to the advice that she provided me. I eagerly recommend her to my doctoral students as they enter into their job searches.”

“Kris took the time to get to know me as a person as well as my background and my experiences. Kris did a masterful job of weaving my compelling story into all of my marketing materials. I was very pleased with the end product that Kris delivered to me. Kris over-delivered on my expectations and I believe she inspired a level of confidence in myself. I highly recommend Kris based on her level of expertise, her approach, and customer service. ”
