About Kris

I am Kris Plantrich, certified career management coach, board certified coach, senior outplacement career counselor, certified resume writer, and owner of Summit View Career Coaching Services. My experience includes 12+ years of facilitating career coaching and resume writing services for professionals and executives who want to be prepared for new opportunities, are in transition, or are looking for alternative career options.

Currently dividing my time between Jacksonville, Florida and Burton, MI, I work virtually with clients around the United States and often around the world. Working one-on-one with clients is where my passion lies and is instrumental in ensuring that every coaching call is developed with your needs in mind. If you are undecided about your next career move I can help you answer questions.
