Ms. Bruni took information about my education and experience into a professional looking resume. She was able to create a document that would not cause someone to discriminate against me because of my age. I thoroughly recommend her to anyone who wants to enhance their marketability in today's job environment.”

Chris Bruni put together a fantastic new resume for me and within a month I had a new job in a professional environment, full-time, with great benefits and a future. Chris's combination of life experience, intelligence, and care are part of what makes her great at putting together resumes and helping the preparation for the job quest. She will put in the time and the focus to get a great resume prepared for the next interview. I'm very glad to have had her help."

Left of the Dial is now available in print and as a Kindle e-book
"The stigma of schizophrenia is fading as research and first-person accounts of this serious mental disorder continue to verify that recovery is possible. Christina Bruni, an author and mental health advocate, made a full recovery from schizophrenia. She chronicles both her severe illness and her recovery in her unique and spell-binding book, “Left of the Dial.”

Recovery from schizophrenia has been documented as attainable by researchers who are using evidence-based, person-centered treatment and supportive services that enable people with this disorder to gain control over their symptoms, set realistic goals and reach their dreams for a normal life.

Reading Christina Bruni’s book will give the reassurance, motivation, and map for all those suffering from schizophrenia‒and their families‒for getting on the road to recovery. This road has many potholes and bumps, but the sunshine will light your passage if you remember that persistence is the path to least failure!"
