About Me

My Skillset

I have a weirdly specific skillset that allows me to translate what makes you awesome into professional documents that support your career goals. Moreover, my insight gives you the renewed confidence and energy needed to move forward in your career, whether that’s positioning yourself for a promotion, corporate board seat, or heading in a new direction all together.

I have always had the ability to see beyond how people present themselves into what makes them special – even when they can’t see it themselves - and bring that uniqueness to the surface.

I work with clients to articulate their skills and experience, discover their voice, and carry it over to ensure their professional documents are truly reflective. There is only one You, and when you tap into the power of your individuality you separate yourself from the crowd. I can help you harness that power. Reach out to get started.

Kind Words From Clients

I never thought writing a resume and cover letter could be fun until I had the pleasure of working with Etienne as part of her career coaching for the Burlington Code Academy. In addition to her weekly seminars during class time covering topics like networking and negotiation, Etienne also worked with students 1:1 to help each of us craft a new resume.

Etienne's enthusiasm for writing the perfect resume is truly infectious, she somehow is able to take the dreaded task of writing a resume and turn it into something I looked forward to each week. And detail oriented doesn't begin to describe her attentiveness to the minutia of the English language and crafting ones career narrative. Etienne's investment in our success was also evident through her energy and positivity, I felt like we each had someone in our corner.

Thank you, Etienne, for equipping my classmates and I with the tools and confidence we need to be successful in tech.
