The Team


Rachel Horan

Chief Career Cultivator
After working over 20 years in Human Resources, I became a professional résumé writer and career consultant. Today, I share my insider knowledge of what employers and recruiters are looking for in prospective candidates. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English from Hollins University in Virginia and am a member of the National Resume Writers' Association (NRWA). I utilize my education in writing, my experience in HR and recruitment, and ongoing education and access to resume/hiring trends to help you find your next position and career you desire. It is my mission to get to know each of my clients and help them showcase their experience, potential, and unique personalities to help open doors.
