Meet Amy

Executive, Coach and Educator

When it comes to healthcare, my experience is broad and deep. My 23 years of nursing experience and 18 years of progressive leadership positions have given me a unique lens on the business and practice of healthcare.


In particular, I am passionate about advancing the role and visibility of nurses in business, advocating for healthcare quality, and empowering organizations to achieve outstanding results through technology and best practices.

As I have grown and gained experience through the years, I have learned that leadership is its own specialty. Driven by that knowledge, I work to learn as much as I can about my specialty. As such, I am a member of the John Maxwell Team, and a John Maxwell certified DiSC trainer.


Through the years I have had the opportunity to mentor and support other leaders in their journey. I have served as a mentor with the American Organization of Nurse Leaders and currently mentor with the American Nurses Association.


I also serve as a Magnet Appraiser with the ANCC where I have the unique opportunity to see and interact with top-performing organizations. This glimpse into current best practices and innovations lend credence to the drive behind my everyday practice. 

Over the course of my career, I have developed a love for coaching and a determination to build high-performance organizations that make a difference in both patients' and communities' well being. I am specifically attuned to the challenges of women in leadership and, more importantly, their potential impact when empowered. 

In addition to my consulting work, I serve as the COO and CNO for a software as a service healthcare technology company and  have served as an instructor and adjunct faculty at the University of South Carolina as well as the University of Arkansas for the Medical Sciences. I consider it a privilege to coach and grow future leaders in healthcare.


When not working in nursing, I enjoy empowering women through entrepreneurship, proudly watching my two active girls in their various activities, or video chatting with my eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson, who are stationed overseas.
