Amy is a coach, consultant, instructor, and author with a focus on communication effectiveness, team development, and psychophysiological self-regulation. Her passion is increasing ease and fulfillment at work by helping to remove barriers that make human interaction unnecessarily difficult.
Amy has led the research, development, and facilitation of countless trainings for both clients and practitioners on topics ranging from delegation and accountability to building trust, resolving conflict, and delivering effective feedback. Since 2017, she has served as faculty on team coaching training programs.
Amy’s clients have ranged from nursing staffs to school faculties to corporate executive teams. She has a particular expertise in analyzing and transforming habitual patterns of behavior. Her professional development has included intensive training in systems theory, group development, somatic therapy and coaching, and communication theory—particularly SAVI® (the System for Analyzing Verbal Interaction). Amy is co-author of Conversation Transformation (McGraw-Hill, 2012), the first book to be published on SAVI.
Prior to her current work, Amy worked for eight years in the publishing industry, gaining experience in all areas of the field—from acquisition and publicity to developmental editing, design, and production. Outside of work, her greatest learning and inspiration come from her twin daughters.
