Nurse Midwife Resume

Resume writer's comments: "The strong and creatively formatted summary section quickly and clearly highlights this person's expertise as a Nurse-Midwife." The effect was accomplished through inverted-pyramid formatting of two groups of lines, center-aligning each line (with a hard return at the end of each line), and making each new line shorter than the preceding one. The section's appearance is distinctive and captures the reader's attention.
