When I worked with Rachel, I had been in farming and food for over a decade, but I felt like my career didn’t fit the usual moving-up-the-ladder story you see on a standard resume. I had just taken a year off after my child was born and was anxious about finding a position that aligned with my values and life as a new parent. Rachel helped me present my career narrative and build my confidence, as well as write a strong resume and cover letter. With my new materials, I landed a job supporting farmers in climate change adaptation work. Rachel knows what she’s doing!

Rachel was professional, communicative, and kind. I appreciated that she really took the time to hear about my job search struggles and put a lot of thought into how I could revamp my resume. I highly suggest her services.

Working with Rachel to update and refine my resume exceeded my expectations. I walked away from our call with actionable steps, detailed examples, and tailored suggestions to help attract the opportunities I am looking for. I am so proud of my new resume and feel more confident discussing and highlighting my experience and skills. I cannot recommend Rachel’s services enough!
