I founded Career Polish after a life-changing a-ha moment. I left "Corporate America" and never looked back. Since then, I have helped thousands of professionals make the changes in their brand, career and life to move onward and upward in their career getting career happy.
I am a life-long student and lover of storytelling. I'm fascinated with the words we choose, how we use them and the power they have in all forms: verbal and nonverbal. With an insatiable curiosity, I continue to study body language, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), personal branding and master level writing for my growth and ability to bring my unique coaching and storytelling differentials to my clients.

Our work is an investment. We are both investing our time. You are also have a financial investment and I have an additional investment of expertise and resources.
I do not do "quick" carbon copy resumes. I don't do cheap resumes. I won't undervalue you.
When we work together, I am personally vested. You work only with me. No ghostwriters, no subcontractors. The minimum amount of time I spend on a resume is 10 hours. Ten hours of research, writing, editing, testing, fine tuning. This is an investment.
I am also invested in your success. This is why I include a training session in my program to teach you how to use the tools I will provide - without knowledge of how to use them, they become useless. I want you to be able to maximize your investment by learning how to keep your resume alive for other opportunities as your career grows/changes.
It is very simple: tell my clients what they need to hear while providing the right tools and the knowledge of how to use them to achieve their defined success.
I am a positive person, in almost all situations.
I am non-judgmental, respect confidentiality, direct communicator, supportive coach with a touch of sass.
I do not accept client's who don't need me or aren't ready to move forward. This is why I offer a free initial consultation, for us to get to know each other.
I have been featured or included: Forbes, Recruiter.com, The Huffington Post Women, The Grindstone, The Indianapolis Star, Time.com, ABC.com, Good Morning Indiana and The Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ.com).
I have been privileged to facilitate workshops for a wide range of organizations including National Association of Resume Writers National Convention, EDUCAUSE Annual Conference, National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, Inc., National Association of Women Business Owners, Social Media Dames Unconference, as well as numerous college/universities; corporate organizations, sales teams, leadership teams, and service organizations.
I spent nearly a decade in the financial industry responsible for and trained in management, leadership, recruiting, coaching, development and compliance for Fortune 500 and small companies including Merrill Lynch, Prudential and McDonald Investments/Key Bank.
I previously held Series 7, 63, 65, 9, 10, 26

My direct approach is a result of an amazing father, raising boys and Chief (he is my better half). You might hear pup in the background, he's the official office dog. I am a huge fan of nature, the Cubs, shoes, diners/dives, and inspirational quotes. In fact, if you connect with me on LinkedIn or follow me on Twitter, you will see a post from me every workday of a positive thought or inspirational quote.
I take all my health very seriously. I work out six days a week for my physical health and exploring nature/unplug on the weekends for my mental health. I practice regular contemplation, reflection and gratitude for my spiritual health. And I contribute to amazing organizations that support, encourage and empower women, cancer survivors, military and business professionals for my emotional health.
