“I had 3 sessions with Amber during a time when I had to make an extremely challenging life decision. She helped me weigh all my options and we narrowed in on my strengths and core values to ensure that I incorporated these into my decision as well. She also helped me with my resume and within one day of changing it and applying for a new job, I was immediately asked to come in for an interview, and offered the job the next day.”
“After working with Amber, I finally found the job I was waiting for for so long! They made me a great offer and all of my “non-negotiables” and values were respected and my expectations were exceeded. Our sessions really helped me to focus on what was important and definitely contributed to me finding a fantastic position.”
“Working with Amber was a life changing experience. She helped me to reach new heights in my career and to finally succeed at long-standing personal goals. She is extremely personable and has the ability to connect with her clients quickly and to begin work with them at whatever stage they’re in at the time. She is trustworthy, always encouraging, and a patient and insightful guide through life experiences in pursuit of goals and dreams. She also offers good value and high integrity.”
“I reached back out to Amber in 2020 when I began contemplating whether it was time for a career change, and received the same high-quality service. She provided multiple resources to explore career options, while simultaneously helping me focus on work-life balance techniques. I’m now well on my way to getting the education and experience needed for my new career, and Amber’s guidance was critical.”
I feel fortunate to have found my calling as a coach and I am passionate about making a difference in other peoples’ lives.
After college, I unintentionally fell into a decade-long career in public relations. I started working at PR agencies and while the money was great and I advanced quickly, I craved more fulfillment. So, I started working for non-profits, hoping it would make a difference. It was a better fit, but something was still missing. So, I did some research and learned about life coaching which – at the time – was a very new profession. I decided to go back to school, get certified and open my own life coaching business in 2003. It was a scary decision but one of the best decisions of my life. Since then, I have helped thousands of clients to find fulfillment through their own careers.
