"Amy is an exceptional person with a myriad of talents…I have worked with Amy since 2001 and have found her to be very astute at assessing organizational capacity and in determining program development opportunities given budget and human resource constraints. 

Her insight on the leadership needs of an organization will serve her well.  She is a very creative individual with superb communication skills.

Finding purpose is the best way to describe how I arrived at this stage of my work and life.

By working with me you too can discover your purpose. Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi calls this "flow," where our talents, skills and passions converge and our work and life have meaning.

In my 26 years as a professional working for major corporations, large and small nonprofits, community groups and a government agency, I have come to realize that we are each capable of having tremendous impact once we know our strengths and have the capacity to use them daily in our work.

This is why I have I have honed my strengths of strategic focus and curiosity combining them with empathy, humor and creativity in my work with clients. 

Research based consulting
I infuse my work with years of research on resilience, interpersonal neurobiology, intentional change, and emotional intelligence to help my clients achieve the transformation they seek.

I also bring a panoramic view to my work, gleaned from roles as a marketing communications specialist, public relations director, and grant writer and from my work with a private grant making foundation. Prior to my work in the nonprofit sector, I worked with the Washington State Dairy Products Commission and as a client relations analyst with Ford Motor Company. 

I am a 2009 graduate of Seattle University’s  Master of Nonprofit Leadership (MNPL) program and have a BA in Consumer Economics. I also am a certified emotional intelligence coach through Multi Health Systems, Inc. In my masters work, I created a model for intentional change that focused on aligning individual leader competencies with organizational strategy. This is based on the work of Richard Boyatzis, professor in the psychology and organizational behavior departments of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

I recently was  fortunate to study and complete a certificate in Appreciative Inquiry with David Cooperrider and Ronald Fry at Case Western Reserve's Weatherhead School of Management.

I continue to incorporate mindfulness practices in my work. The work of Daniel Siegel has been profoundly inspirational and transformative for me!
