Kate Madden – President

Kate Madden, MBA, CPRW is the president and co-owner of Fresh Start Careers. She is also the president of our sister company, Fresh Start Resumes LLC.

In her ‘former professional life’, Kate was a certified clinical research professional (CCRP). She spent over 10 years in the R&D operations management side of the pharmaceutical industry. However, her passion for helping others with their own careers and her inner entrepreneur eventually pulled her away from the corporate world and into the ever-challenging, but deeply rewarding world of resumes, career coaching and now talent acquisition. It’s her happy place.

Kate loves getting to know her clients on a personal level. She listens intently to what they say (and what they don’t say) during her one-on-one consultations. Understanding what her clients need/want is critical to a successful partnership.

Kate received her Masters in Business Administration from Temple University (2003) and became a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW, 2010).

Kate lives in Philadelphia, PA. When she is not busy running her businesses, ghostwriting professional stories, and crafting powerful resumes, she can be found spending quality time with her marathoner husband, three energetic young children, and a beastly labrador retriever who is convinced that he is a lap dog and goes to extreme measures for a belly rub.
