Hello! I'm Nikki Townsend, owner and primary resume writer at Townsend Career Services. With a background in supporting senior executives and growing small businesses and non-profits, I pivoted to resume writing in 2012, becoming a full-time resume writer in 2014. Ever since, my focus has been on empowering clients in their job search journey, helping them confidently secure roles that align with their career goals.


I am a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert (NCOPE), and I'm passionate about continuous learning in career development trends. I specialize in developing a cohesive and polished set of career documents, ensuring that resumes, cover letters, and LinkedIn profiles complement each other effectively. Outside work, I'm a mother of three, a keen reader, and an enthusiastic camper, striving for balance in both my professional and personal life.
