Meet The Boss

Michelle O’Flaherty
Michelle O’FlahertyFounder & Director
Hi, My name is Michelle O’Flaherty and I am the founder of Mumma Bird.
I’ve had a successful career in sales and have secured employment in some of the most competitive companies and industries. Writing a resume is just like a sales process. You are the product, the company is the customer and your resume is your sales tool. We will teach you how to uncover the needs of the customer to write the perfect resume.

Before I started maternity leave I worked for company that was voted the 2nd best place to work in Australia. It’s was fierce and competitive and I am proud to say I won many awards for my work.
Once I had my baby girl and became a mother, I was shocked to see how many other mothers were nervous about going back into the work force and I felt a strong desire to share my knowledge and experience and support these women in their quest for the perfect job.
I developed Mumma Bird Resume Services as a friendly place where mothers can be given help in a supportive and understanding environment.

At Mumma Bird you not only receive excellent resume and interview preparation services, but you will also receive invaluable training on how to confidently and successfully “sell” yourself as an employee.
My approach is very different to most career guidance companies as we understand how busy a mum is. It’s not unusual for us to meet in a park or coffee shop to discuss a resume while the kids play or drink their bubbacinos

I am very lucky to have a wonderful group on Mumma Bird consultants. We are all experienced in resume writing and career services and we are all mothers so we also understand that life is busy and will tailor a program that will work around your schedule and commitments.

I am so proud about the work that we do at Mumma Bird and the confidence that we provide mothers during a very uncertain time.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Mumma Bird we can’t wait to talk to you!

Nicola Filia Career Consultant
Hi, my name is Nikki Filia and I have been part of the Mumma Bird team since June 2017.
Over the last 20 years, I have had a long career in senior retail management for some of Australia’s biggest retailers. Over that time I have read thousands of resumes and done hundreds of interviews. I know what helps you make the short list and what puts you in the no pile!
Since having two kids of my own I have been working in a national role for a local retailer as well as working alongside Michelle as a Mumma Bird Consultant. I have loved meeting local Mums who want to re-enter the workforce and supporting them in creating a resume that best sells their skills. Best of all I have watched so many clients realise their own potential and celebrated their success as they enter the next phase of their lives.
Mums have a lot to offer! We can help you present your skills and experience and prepare you to move into your next role. (And yes you do have skills and experience that employers are looking for …..trust me)
I look forward to meeting you and chatting over a latte or a margarita!
