About Lex

I'm a full-time professional resume writer specializing in Federal jobs and military-to-civilian transitions. I've worked with many Active Duty, Reservist, Military Spouse, and Veteran clients over the years and discovered that I really enjoyed working with military folks. Earlier, I spent 10+ years with the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer.

I also offer a wide range of other career and personal brand management services, including LinkedIn Profiles, cover and thank you letters, bios, narratives, and interview preparation. I'm very familiar with GS, Wage Grade, and SES Federal job announcements and requirements.

My education includes undergraduate and graduate degrees in Political Science from Amherst College (MA) and Oxford University (UK), respectively. Passions include reading, history, travel, and dogs (and, of course, my significant other). I am a Certified Federal Resume Writer.

I also offer professional, paid resume work to interested participants. Please contact me directly if you would like to know more.
