Introduction: Have you ever had a vision about your experiences but could not figure out how to get it down on paper? That is why I am here - to help you bring those visions to life. Focusing on a personal and communicative approach, I specialize in different divisions such as resume writing, editing & proofreading, marketing copywriting, as well as other writing services such as ghostwriting for various manuscripts, blogs, articles, and newsletters. I love to utilize my creative thinking and passion for marketing and creativity into serving the highest quality for my clients. So, how did this all start? Through a personal blog. After I designed my first few blog posts and grew an audience, I noticed that it was gaining attention in multiple countries around the globe. That is when I realized I needed to expand my blog into a business. Most importantly, I incorporate my personal approach to build a relationship with every client and business I meet; best of all, I get to be the person that changed their lives for the better. This is why I love what I get to do everyday-my passion, my dream, my inspiration. It has been a whirlwind of an adventure so far, and I am excited to see what comes next. Let’s get on a call and have some fun! I have my CPRW Certification ✨ I’m a Certified Writer with the International Association of Professional Writers & Editors (IAPWE) and an Editor of ACES: The Society for Editing.

Resume Writing

Working with Em was easy and swift. I had put off updating my resume for some time now, as it's not one of my stonger skills. I'm so glad I hired Em and a Pen to write/update my resume for me. Now that I see it all on paper, I truly feel like I've accomplished something in my life. Hiring Em has given me a renewed sense of confidence to start searching for a better paying job in 2021. Thank you.

It was such a pleasure to work with Emily! She was very helpful throughout the entire process. She formatted a fantastic resume, cover letter, and updated my LinkedIn! I would highly recommend her for all of your resume writing needs!

Resume Writing

I highly recommend working with Emily. She responds immediately, she's professional and not to mention she's very very good. She made my resume and cover letter sparkle so much that I hired her to write a second resume and cover letter for me. I couldn't be happier with the final products! I will definitely hire her again and will recommend her to my friends and family as well.

I really appreciate Emily getting back to me quickly. She was able to write a resume for me that is very eloquent and detailed. I expect very positive results from my new resume. I couldn’t have described myself on paper any better.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is fairly reasonable for my experience and creative eye.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always want to get to know my client first before getting started. I want to understand who they are as a person, instead of just doing the work. Building that relationship will go a long way in the end.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing along with professional training with resume editing and recruiting.
