Working at the intersection of change where people and plans merge

As a 28-year nonprofit and social-sector specialist, I bring a panoramic view and high-level of expertise to meet each client's individual needs. While I offer an array of tools (listed below), each project requires its own customized approach--which is what I deliver!


My areas of focus fall into three broad categories tailored for individuals, organizations, community coalitions, and philanthropic organizations:

Amy designed and led two workshops for our grantees on how to connect the story their organization tells with the change they want to see for measurable impact. The attendees were excited to have a roadmap that they could implement and share with their board and staff. Overall, an excellent and enlightening training.
