With her curious mind and transcendental nature, Amy feeds her soul by empowering others to accomplish goals they never thought possible. Her empathetic and passionate approach to coaching has allowed her to turn individuals and executives into well-spoken and successful leaders. Shifting impossibilities to realities is what Amy's inner calling is all about.
A mathematics major from UC Berkeley, Amy spent over a decade at Sun Microsystems entrenched in the world of tech in various roles ranging from technical training creation and delivery to program management. She then switched gears to obtain her Masters in Transpersonal Psychology. From there, she moved onto IDEO as an Experience Lead, where she coached their community of designers on career-related topics and personal issues. Now a full-time executive coach, Amy brings a distinctive blend of analytical thinking, leadership and transformative influence to every collaboration she touches.
A native of California, Amy currently resides in San Francisco. She truly cherishes her family time and can often be found playing and goofing off with her four- and eight-year-old children. When she isn't clearing her mind hiking, weightlifting or meditating, Amy loves to eat, drink and make merry —which makes her and her chef/restaurateur husband a match made in foodie heaven.
"Amy was super animated and brought a lot of energy through out the day. She talked the talk and walked the walk through out her demos which were great reminders for us. A GREAT example of how to be a clear, direct, and competent female speaker."
"Amy is magnetic. She has such an authentic presence and really knows how to do run affective trainings with heart, mind and soul."
