Decades of success


My dad died in 1978. My mom died from complications of dementia. To this day, I regret not listening assiduously to their stories. Don’t make the same mistake.


I am a business owner, college graduate, writer and journalist. My proven skills include interviewing and documentation. I will write a summary of your loved one’s history.


As CEO of Appelbaum’s Resume Professionals, Inc., I’ve had an exceptional 40+ year history of successes. Let’s talk about you or your loved one before it is too late.

"You wrote a resume for me a few weeks ago. I wanted to say thank you. Everything was great and starting October 14 I will be working for Gordie Boucher Nissan as a Service Advisor. They are going to be training me to be Nissan certified and I should be expected to make about $36,000 to $42,000 starting off with more pay with experience and training and also have room for advancement.  This is going to be a big raise for me since currently, I was making $30,000 a year. Thank you again for everything."
