The Daria-cool

big sister you

always wanted!

Amy mentors like the Daria-cool big sister you always wanted. She tells you whatʻs what and supports your growth with acerbic wit and kindness. Every interaction with her is genuine and respectful of the diversity of lived experience towards discovery.
 
A keen eye for nuance and daring truth-telling are the hallmarks of her style. Amy’s not afraid of asking the tough questions, standing up for what’s right, or speaking hard truths emerging from data. This approach galvanizes people to imagine big and create with heart
and detail. It creates space for people to actualize and stretch their thinking to new understanding in a safe space. I continue to be inspired by Amy’s grit, warmth, and relentless advocacy for the human and community in technology.

My experience with Amy has been amazing. Her thoughtful, pragmatic approach to career development and advice has been fathomless. She asks the right questions, listens intently, and works with you to guide you in the right direction. She is passionate about her work, has a tremendous growth mindset, and will always be open and honest with you. Amy is awesome to work with and will help you find and achieve your goals.

Will always

be open and

honest with you

David, Principal Product

Manager

It was helpful to have someone who had industry experience and a feminist/anti-capitalist perspective. When you said "ew gross" after

I told you about the product director sending me books on productivity... I felt SEEN. 

The most helpful part was the reality check--I was asking for way too little money from the contract and it was *so* good to have more context about that. 

As far as my goals -- even being given the insight to think about Intuition, Values, and Evidence -- that shaped my thinking big time. 

I felt SEEN.

Amy provided concrete guidance in developing a strategy to renegotiate my work position description and salary. Amy's focused and detailed questions helped me create a plan that accounted for multiple possibilities and setbacks. Amy is INVALUABLE as a coach. She is thoughtful, insightful, and damn good at what she does!

Damn good at 

what she does!

Renewed 

sense of clarity

Working with Amy helped me dig into a major career transition and come out the other side with a renewed sense of clarity and deepened sense of purpose. We focused on professional achievement, personal growth, and the values as a foundational component of career satisfaction.
 
Her approach is profoundly refreshing. Her "anti-BS" style and skills as a listener, thought partner and coach pushed me and supported me at the same time. It's desperately needed in the poseur-rich world of career advice and job hunting.

Job searching was such a dread until I met Amy. Any UX designer will tell you that the process of putting together a portfolio and preparing for interviews is taxing and can really shake your confidence. Amy brought a balanced perspective that helped me see my search as an opportunity for storytelling. Our work was instrumental in building confidence going into the interview process.
