2023 Conference Coaches
Amy’s goal is to help clients identify and overcome obstacles preventing them from being the best version of themselves- whatever that means for them, whether they’re looking for solutions to specific personal or professional challenges they are facing or feeling stuck.
One of Amy’s coaching strengths is visualizing the overall picture of complex problems and then strategically deconstructing them to identify their clients’ solutions. Every client is unique. Their goals, obstacles, and passions are personal and highly individual.
Amy’s coaching philosophy evolves and grows with each client. Her coaching style is creative, thought-provoking, and collaborative. She partners and collaborates with her clients and creates a safe, trusting, comfortable environment where she and her clients can learn and grow. The ultimate goal of her coaching is to help her clients discover how to figure things out for themselves, solve problems independently, get unstuck, let them discover the solution that already exists within, and imagine all the possibilities of what can be for their life.
For Amy, transitioning into coaching was a natural transition, given her first career was working in the non-profit sector in the substance abuse field. Her breadth and depth of knowledge and experience working with individuals, families, and communities have given her the unique ability to connect with people and transform their lives and careers. She has over 25 years of non-profit and entrepreneurship experience. She’s created a non-profit organization, worked with the DEA Educational Foundation, and a national non-profit organization working to reduce teen substance abuse and support families impacted by addiction.
Amy holds a B.A. in Psychology, a minor in Business from Westminster College, and a Master’s in Educational Psychology from Texas A&M University. She is an NYU Certified Life Coach, a Certified Master Career Coach with GetFive, Time Management Coach, and a trained Recovery Coach through CCAR. After serving as President for four years, she is the Past President of the Board of Directors for the New York City International Coaching Federation Chapter.

I describe my career “from Wall Street to Well-Being.” Over 17 years I worked in two (2) distinctly different Fortune 500 companies where I was blessed to be at the center of the explosive growth in the Cable/Telecommunications, Media and Entertainment industries. I was well positioned to continue my career in financial services instead I chose to courageously jump into the business of well-being, and, in no way did I know what that would look like. Looking back, I’d say that there was a powerful purpose calling me that was not in my conscious mind whatsoever! Today, I’m coaching and developing leaders. Leadership is a value and leading is a way of life, and I believe that everyone is a leader and responsible for their impact. I’ve been coaching women leaders through a wide array of transitions spanning 20 years, often asking the question: When was the last time you did something for the first time? My coaching relationships are experiential at their essence inviting my clients to live their journey by making resonate choices, embodying the work and taking action between coaching sessions.
One of my favorite ways to jump start change for humans is to partner them with horses who are hardwired to deliver “in the moment” 360o feedback on our impact. With a professional coach dancing in the moment with you, shifts in horse behavior can become important opportunities to wonder how our communication style, leadership presence and our emotional agility are perceived.
