"We are what we know. Growing up, my mother was an English teacher. I'd sit with her at the kitchen table while she graded - her red pen a trusty sword shining in the midst of a stack of papers a mile high. She taught me her tricks and tips, her shortcuts and symbols, and as writing became a passion of mine, I began to realize that editing was one too.
Throughout my time at Villanova University, I was always that girl with three of my friends' papers wedged into my purse. I was the one in the café scanning essays and thesis statements.
I love assisting in creating that final product - the freshly printed, mistake-free masterpiece that is black words on a white page. After years of writing, editing, and tutoring, I decided it was time to open my own business and founded Red Pen Wench in 2014.
I have since earned my certification and have written over 250 resumes and CVs for clients in a variety of professions across the world. I also specialize in writing cover letters and enhancing LinkedIn branding and content.
Let it be known that the minute Peter Parker donned his red spandex, he became Spiderman. I may not have 'spidey senses' (or even spandex), but I do have a red pen. And as Red Pen Wench, I will fight off every grammar mistake, battle every boring word choice, and conquer the evil that is anything less than a professional piece of prose."

"As a writer and editor, I’ve witnessed a disparity between what talented professionals have accomplished and how they present themselves to potential employers. 'Stop underselling yourself' is the motto I adopted when explaining the importance of a tailored and cohesive resume. At times, this occupation has seen me akin to a spelunker, exploring the obscured caves of a client's academic, professional, and employment experiences.
I am drawn to the realm of real-world writing and utilize my creative background to bring color to the facts. My professional niches - education and career building - reflect a marriage of my passions: assisting others and engineering meaningful text.
I have been crafting effective cover letters and resumes for clients since 2012."

"I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of job seekers as they pave the path to a new career and a new life. I started my career as a writer and editor for a travel magazine publishing house, and after 10 years as a professional writer, I entered the career services field by accident. What I thought was just a temporary diversion became my passion, as I quickly learned that I had a knack for all the key requirements to be a successful career advisor. I excel in telling stories through resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, and have a deep repository of knowledge that I can use to coach almost any career-related situation.
What I love most about my career is that my success comes as a product of someone else's opportunity. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing that my effort and attention to detail may ultimately pave the path to a new beginning for a client.
In my free time, I love to read. Whether it the back of a cereal box, or academic journal articles, my interests are deep and wide. I love learning new things, and my inherent curiosity has led me to become somewhat of an "expert" in a wide range of fields, including energy development, college sports, public policy, and – my guilty pleasure – the British Royal Family."
