An Uncanny Ability to Produce Something from What Appears to be Nothing
Kris enjoys working with her jobless clients who are the most technologically savvy individuals on the planet as well as not yet out of grade school, middle school, or high school. She produces the most wonderful resumes for these clients who "think" they have not accomplished much at their young age. Kris has a knack for drawing out overlooked accomplishments, gifts, talents, and simple pleasures that deserve recognition. Her young clients are tickled pink with the final results of their resumes. Just like her clients say, "I didn't know I had it in me." Kris didn't know she had it in her to write a book let alone write one that would uplift and inspire.
