Brie Weiler Reynolds: Contracting and Freelancing Expert

Brie Weiler Reynolds is the Senior Career Specialist at FlexJobs and a contributing writer for 1 Million for Work Flexibility (WorkFlexibility.org) and Remote.co. FlexJobs is the award-winning site for telecommuting and flexible jobs, listing thousands of pre-screened, legitimate, and professional-level work-from-home, flexible schedule, part-time, and freelance jobs.

Brie's goal is to provide practical information and resources to help people overcome their roadblocks and discover career happiness.

Since 2010, Brie has focused on providing career advice for people seeking flexible work options, including working parents, people with disabilities or chronic illnesses, students, entrepreneurs, digital nomads, caregivers, people close to or in retirement, military spouses, and anyone who wants better work-life balance. Through hundreds of articles, dozens of webinars, an online course, and media outlets like Fast Company, Forbes, and NBC News, she provides advice, tips, analysis, and best practices related to the flexible job market.

Her interest in flexible work options comes from her own experience: Since she began telecommuting in 2009, Brie’s moved to three different states, started a family, gone from part-time to full-time, and back to part-time. Because of work flexibility, she’s stayed with one company and grown her career in meaningful ways, which would have been nearly impossible without flexible work options.

Now, as the Senior Career Specialist at FlexJobs, Brie helps professionals who need that same flexibility by connecting them with tools and advice for finding flexible work options, evolving their careers, and finding the right fit between the professional and personal aspects of their lives.

Brie has over 10 years of experience in career advising and job search assistance, a Master's of Science in Human Resources Management, and she is a member of the National Career Development Association. Find Brie on Twitter, @briewreynolds and FlexJobs Blog.
