Meet Inayah Baaqee MA, Certified Professional Resume Writer, and creator of Chrysallis Lab Career Consulting. Outside of her work in career development consulting, she is a higher education administrative professional with over 6 years of experience in academic advising, program management, data management, and teaching in higher education. Over the past three years, Inayah has provided resume services for family, colleagues, university students, and Alameda County Social Services Agency. She has also participated on a number of hiring committees, scholarship review committees, and educational panels/workshops where she acquired valuable knowledge about career development and success.
She is a graduate of San Francisco State University where she received her Master of Arts Degree in Developmental Psychology. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from UC Davis. She also attended Berkeley City College where she received Associate of Arts degrees in both Psychology and Liberal Arts and Social Science.
Inayah developed a passion for providing quality career support to early career professionals when she found herself struggling to form a professional identity and find opportunities as an entry-level professional. Through trial and error, she discovered that her barrier to entry was due in part because she struggled to tell her own story, using her resume and cover letter as the medium. She believes that, while navigating the current job market can be daunting and discouraging at times, operating strategically and with a holistic career-oriented mindset could greatly improve the process. Her mission is to provide career development support to help you get to a more comfortable place in your career.
Inayah is also a professional Dance Artist and Dance Educator with over 19 years of professional dance experience, specializing in West-African, Congolese, Brazilian, Haitian, and Caribbean Dance styles. When she is not in the Chrysallis Lab offering career support, she can be found teaching and performing dance, lifting weights, or growing her plant collection.
