Executive Director, B.E.S.T.

Amy is very talented at coaching and helping me land my dream job! I received mentoring from Amy during a pivotal turning point in my career and credit her assistance for helping me make my career aspirations possible. She asks the right questions to help narrow down what your key talents are and gives you the right language to relay them during an interview and in writing. I would recommend her to anyone in need of coaching and/or mentoring.
