About

Hi, I'm Margaret.

I am a double-Harvard graduate, certified resume writer, and former attorney. I love writing and bringing people's stories to life. I'm here to help you transform your career collateral into powerful materials that reflect your best professional self.

I began my career as a corporate tax associate at an international law firm in Boston and Washington D.C., focusing on executive compensation and non-profit law (but dabbling in it all!). I then spent seven years at Georgetown Law as an academic advisor and Assistant Dean for Experiential Learning, overseeing simulation courses and advising hundreds of law students as they forged their academic and career paths. 

 

I am a lifelong squash player and most recently served as Executive Director at one of the nation's only public squash facilities, Squash On Fire, in downtown D.C. I live with my husband and three children in the Capitol Hill neighborhood.

My Process

My approach is collaborative and focused on bringing out your best self.

We start with a conversation about your career goals and where you feel your resume is holding you back from landing your dream job. After collecting information and drafting your resume, we review your new document together and make sure each bullet focuses in on your most powerful and relevant accomplishments.

 

The Accelerated Resume process is a sprint, getting you a targeted resume in 2 weeks.

The Full-Service Resume and Executive Package typically take between 4 and 6 weeks of regular advice and unlimited revisions, allowing for a deeper exploration of your professional achievements and career collateral.

Check out my Terms for more information about how we'll collaborate together. 

I take your privacy seriously. All of our conversations are confidential.

Consultation

In our first call, we discuss you goals, the type of job you're targeting, and where you think your current resume may be letting you down.

Drafting

You'll send me any additional materials (old performance reviews, cover letters, bios, etc.) and I'll draft your new resume in 5 business days.

Review & Revision

We'll jump on a call to review the draft and discuss how we can make each bullet a little stronger. 

Final document

I'll incorporate your feedback and you'll have a chance to ask for  revisions before I send you final documents!

The Best Investment of My Career!

Margaret transformed my resume into something I am SO PROUD to distribute. Working with her was the best investment of my year and maybe my career, and I only wish I approached her sooner.
