Read Amy's bio


Amy is a seasoned Executive Coach and former Boston-based biomedical research CEO and COO. She has been coaching leaders for 15 years, in addition to leading numerous programs and serving as speaker at national and global conferences on topics including leadership development, business process improvement, and cultivating high performing teams.

She has also been a guest on high-profile podcasts, blog posts, and panels sharing her personal transformation story and embracing her authentic leadership and coaching signature.

During her CEO tenure, she led an institutional turnaround to rebuild a culture of excellence, high performance, and people-centered service. This included a major institutional process improvement initiative built on a coaching approach to leadership and driven in partnership with her heads of HR, Finance, IT, Operations, Research/Science, and Compliance (all of whom were direct reports and strategic partners).


Amy works with global leaders including the C-suite, VPs, and complex Director level roles across industries and sectors. Having been in their shoes, she understands the importance of an unconflicted sounding board and trusted partner who can help leaders in positions that feel “lonely at the top” with their developmental goals and more deeply aligning with the leader (and person) they want to be.

She is known for her deep reflective listening and supportive challenging of clients to help them move closer to their aspirations. With a custom approach tailored to each client, she specializes in helping clients increase psychological flexibility in service of greater self-awareness, executive presence, conflict management, sensemaking, and experimentation with new and inclusive approaches.


Amy completed her Executive MBA at MIT Sloan School of Management, and Leadership Coaching certificate at Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership.

She is certified to administer an MIT Sloan and INSEAD-developed psychometrically validated leadership 360 assessment (the x360).

She holds a Lecturer appointment at MIT Sloan, serving as coach and mentor to Executive MBA teams pursuing an entrepreneurship module that aims to prepare start-ups for successful launch. She also serves as Executive Education Coach for MIT Sloan’s Advanced Management Program (AMP).

To deepen her skills and practice, she maintains active professional memberships with the International Coaching Federation (ICF), Institute of Coaching (IOC), and Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS). To further enhance her skills and keep her practice relevant, she participates in many continuing education opportunities as well as study groups and peer consultation groups.

Trained in evidence-based therapeutic modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy/Coaching (ACT/ACC) and Motivational Interviewing (MI), she integrates a broad array of techniques into her coaching practice to help clients introspect on what matters below the surface of their coaching goals; identify and connect with values; and make transformational choices that support deeper alignment with the leader they want to be. While coaching and therapy both help drive deeper introspective awareness, coaching is focused on envisioning and enacting future possibility, to drive real and lasting change.
