Executive Career and Leadership Coaching

You’re more than a dreamer: You’re a visionary.

You want to enjoy your work, and you’re passionate about building a better world.

Although your career used to be satisfying, lately, it's been causing more stress than pleasure.

You may be feeling as if you’re:

If any of those sound familiar, I have good news:

You can become the leader you’re meant to be–someone inspired and empowered to change the world in their work each day.

The key is to first look inward to identify what's important and what's missing. Then, the right path forward starts to present itself. Working with an experienced and professionally trained coach accelerates your journey.

This experience truly changed my perspective on not just my career, but how my career fits into my life overall.

Amy gave me the permission and the safe space to explore my strengths and passions and define my own vision of success.

Inquisitive and insightful, Amy helped me uncover the ‘why’ of what excites and motivates me and helped me look for opportunities to grow in those areas. So much more than a career coach, Amy is a kind, patient and thoughtful mentor. If you’re feeling lost or unfulfilled in your career or held back in your current role - and aren’t sure what the right next step is - I’d strongly suggest connecting with Amy.

Working with Amy wasn’t the work I thought I was going to do; it was the work I didn’t realize I needed to do.
