The professionals at Resumes Right know what employers want because they've been there themselves—poring over resumés, interviewing candidates, and picking the right person. Now, they help job-seekers through that same process. Before creating polished resumés, revising existing ones, or penning cover letters, they meet with clients for an in-depth consultation. After interview coaching, clients can confidently answer questions about their work experience, personal qualities, and what their dream jobs would be if they could breathe underwater. Those who'd like to polish interview skills even more can also come in for mock interviews, with the option to tape sessions for further review.
Supervised by an on-staff medical director, Cara Bella Studio's staff brings its A game to rejuvenate entire bodies with massages and med-spa treatments. Trained massage therapists wring tension from muscles to reduce stress and widen range of movement and also prop up postures by whispering pep talks to vertebrae. Nonsurgical med-spa services such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments aim to liberate facescapes from fine lines, and teeth whitening and eyelash extensions amp up smiles and winks, respectively.

So instead of losing them forever, Gordon lifted his artistic legs and took the step toward his new career as a photographer.

After a chance meeting at an international photographers’ conference, the duo joined forces to open Art and Soul Photography, focusing on creating custom pieces that celebrate subjects with style and individuality.

They’ve traveled throughout North Africa and Europe, teaching students that photography is a viable alternative to chiselling marble statues during every Kodak moment.
