LaTonya Ratesa Bynum helped with fixing my resume for {my current} position as a Wellness and Leave Administrator and I GOT THE JOB. This job is everything I ever wanted salary and job position wise. I’m just so thankful for her and this {Black Ladies In Public Health} group. She kept checking on me and everything. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to her. She is so so helpful and resourceful.

Thank you so much! I love your {LinkedIn} content so much and I've used some of the resume and assertive communication tips you've posted these past few weeks to get a promotion at work. Just this month, I went from a data entry position to social media coordinator and next week I will hear back if I got the internal position as Project Manager. Because of your work, I plan to start being more intentional with my LinkedIn content.

I had the pleasure of doing a mock interview with LaTonya Bynum, MPH, CHES® and it was amazing! I highly suggest anyone who may be searching for employment to utilize her services. She gets up close and personal with you and provides immediate feedback on how to do extremely well in an interview and how to negotiate salary. She's awesome and I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

I just completed a CHES Study Session with LaTonya Steward-Bynum and I must say that I was not expecting to gain so much knowledge in just two hours! I am very grateful for LaTonya’s wealth of knowledge and being very direct on the action steps to be taken in order to pass. She’s the real MVP if I must say so myself. I would recommend her course to anyone looking to take the exam! #BlackGirlMagic

A big shout out to Mrs. LaTonya Bynum for the CHES study session! She’s so witty and lucid. Her teaching style is very flexible, catering to each student asking or answering a question. I’m not as uneasy anymore and she immediately sent the homework  lol Thank you & you’ll be seeing me in another session soon!!

An advocate for my success: LaTonya Bynum, I want to thank you for the valuable time you spent with me discussing how I can achieve my career goals. I really appreciate the strategies for improving my performance on the job and much needed resume changes. Constructive criticism with a purpose! Thanks!

Mrs. Bynum has over 10 years of experience in the Public Health field. She is well-versed in providing resources, research, facilitation and presenting. I highly recommend Mrs. LaTonya Bynum, MS, CHES for any training, workshop facilitation, and presenter positions, because of her professionalism, integrity and in-depth knowledge.

LaTonya is a really hard worker, and is willing to always help. When I was looking for a job, LaTonya really took the time out to look at my resume and help me find ways to market myself in this job market. She would take the time to respond to any questions or concerns I had. And would constantly encourage me to not give up. LaTonya is a wonderful person to work with.

La Tonya is brilliant and very focal on her timely advice. Am pleased with her mastery on broader public health issues. She has helped me make my own decision on an issue I raised to her. She is a unique blend of natural ability and directness. Thumbs up.

I participated in LaTonya Bynum's one-hour study prep session for the CHES exam. After months of self-study, I had some questions that I wanted to review in more detail. I reached out to LaTonya on LinkedIn to ask some questions- and within an hour- she provided me with a comprehensive study checklist. Thereafter, I immediately signed up for her CHES prep. I learned to analyze the questions and answer them from a public health landscape and not solely from a nursing perspective. I recommend this valuable to anyone who wants to ensure passing results! Thank you, LaTonya!

LaTonya who is a professional who is not afraid to share her knowledge and collaborate with others. I've only known her for a brief time, but her encouragement and practical advice has helped me move forward in my business.
