I love coaching! It is my passion and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to help my clients find more success, meaning, and happiness in their lives. My practice is solutions-focused and founded on the principles of Positive Psychology, the scientific study of how people flourish - what makes them happy and successful and how to fill their lives with purpose, meaning, optimism and peace. I help my clients find more meaning and purpose in their work and personal life, navigate challenging transitions, find more meaningful work via a career change, increase their impact at work and achieve better work/life balance.
I received my certificate in Positive Psychology Coaching from the Wholebeing Institute (WBI) as well as certification in Positive Psychology from Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, founder of WBI and a leader in Positive Psychology education and leadership training. I have an undergraduate and graduate business degree from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and The Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern, respectively. I have worked in Investment Banking, Management Consulting, and Consumer Products Marketing. My coaching practice draws on the full range of my educational and work experience.
I work with clients to help create new levels of awareness and insights into their own untapped knowledge, strengths, and resources to spark positive change in their lives and reach their most significant life goals. Together we can clarify your goals and increase your awareness of your strengths, internal and external resources and skill set to get you where you need to go. We will also discuss the obstacles and challenges you face and then develop a high-level strategy with concrete, achievable steps for achieving your goals. I will be there to support you and keep you accountable during this process. Progress will be made during and between sessions when you make the choice to change your behavior and focus.

Amy helped me discover my strengths and more importantly, my interests and how to match those two to bring more meaning to my work and life. I now spend time deliberately on those few essential things. She introduced many helpful tools and helped me take decisive action instead of being stuck in analysis. I’m almost 20 years into my career and highly recommend Amy if you are considering a career change or just want more meaning in your current career. – Christie D., Director of Business DevelopmentChristie D., Director of Business, Boulder, Colorado
I went to Amy for help prioritizing a few competing objectives in my life, including finding value in my current work while simultaneously looking for other jobs and exploring the possibility of returning to school for an advanced degree. Amy helped me identify the values that underpin my life and how to use them to make decisions. She gave me practical tools I now use daily to decide what is important to me, how I want to spend my time and move my life forward. I’m no longer incredibly anxious about all the things I have to get done. I can now give myself permission to chip away at projects and also have fun along the way thanks to Amy’s guidance.Fiona, K., Marketing Manager, Boulder, Colorado
I am a recent graduate of CU Boulder and I reached out to Amy to help with my job search process. I had been searching for a number of months with zero responses. Amy helped me define my personal and business strengths and how to apply these to the job search process and in interviews. We also narrowed down my search based on my preferences for industry, location and job type. I think Amy’s best advice was to trust the process and to take the tools we worked on and apply them. I’m happy to say that I am now employed with a top 100 Tech startup. I attribute a majority of my success at landing this job to Amy’s coaching.Mateo G., Boulder, Colorado
Amy worked with me for several months as I explored a mid-life career transition. She helped me dive into my skills, interests, strengths, and accomplishments and helped me identify common themes and business strengths in my diverse work background. Amy helped me create a kick-ass resume and bolstered my self-esteem. I am now on a year-long journey back to entrepreneurship in a field I have a high level of interest in. She also coached me through some difficult and sticky situations in my current role that allowed me to stay employed on much better terms and with better boundaries. I highly recommend Amy if you want a holistic approach to redesigning your life and career!Tawney P., Marketing Manager, Entrepreneur, Boulder, Colorado
I sought out Amy for life coaching in an attempt to find a better work/life balance and to re-establish some career goals I had abandoned when work and life got too busy. Amy asked introspective questions to help me refocus on my core values and how to set goals in line with those values. She helped me understand my strengths and how to use them to reach my goals . Amy’s warm professional manner made it easy for me to relax into the process and achieve a much-needed balance of work and play.Cristina M., Attorney, Founding Partner in Multi-State Law Firm, Austin, Texas
After a 20+ year career in my field, I was ready to explore a new opportunity and Amy was the perfect person to help me navigate that process. Amy’s approach was structured, non-threatening, and very eye-opening. She is warm, open, thoughtful and smart. She helped me identify my core values, think about my life in new ways, and understand the things that hold me back. She’s a great listener who doesn’t offer solutions but rather provides a strategic, personalized framework and the right level of accountability so you can find your own answers and path.Christine P., Marketing and Communications Executive, Boulder, Colorado
As somebody who had never worked with a coach, I was nervous to start. Amy's style and approach quickly allayed those fears. Her warmth, intuition, and listening skills created a comfortable and trusting dynamic. From there, she leveraged her corporate experience and astute insight to push me professionally and form better habits. I'm a more effective manager and worker because of her.Loren K., Vice President, Weath Advisor, Denver, Colorado
