Long Overdue Resume Do-Over!

This class was quite timely! I love working in InDesign and my resume certainly needed a makeover. Here is attempt one. Obviously I've changed a few things for privacy reasons but made sure to do so without compromising the aesthetic.

Here is a zoomed in version that isn't as pixelated so you can see the font I used (obviously my pdf version is very crisp.) Font: Open Sans in many weights.

I'm not sold on the teal-ish color. It kind of reminds me of the colors of the chairs at a typical medical office waiting room (gross.) I want there to be color, but I don't want it to look too girly (I work in manufacturing, so that can be detrimental) and I don't want it to appear as if I forgot to spray my perfume on it or something. I think the hand-lettered name lends to it being feminine, so the resume could stand in black and white. But if given the option, I will always add color, and I think it helps break up the sections a bit. Here are a few I liked but also am not sold on. Thoughts?

I welcome any feedback!
