ABOUT CARLA GENTLE, MSMOB, CPRW (Certified Professional Resume Writer)


Hello. I am a Chicago-based copywriter, content writer, Certified Professional Resume Writer, copy editor, proofreader, and marketer (including branding). I launched Marketing the Write Way in 2010, but my experience and expertise in these areas started much sooner in both the for profit and nonprofit sectors.


I found myself in a position that no matter what job I held or the company where I worked, I somehow turned into THAT person that others sought to proofread and edit their work. It was not part of my job description, but I was honored they approached me. At some point, I realized I had a gift that many business professionals lacked.


In 2010, I launched Marketing the Write Way and even created the website and ALL of the marketing content online and in print. What initially started out as a content writing and copy writing business, soon expanded to include branding and writing resumes for hundreds of professionals. My eye and creative mind allowed me to elevate branding to a whole new level. 

Thinking of working with me? I encourage you to reach out to learn more. Book your free consult today!
