Done being scared to make the leap to a career you love. Done having doors slam because you've been out of the workforce for a while. Done not knowing how to position the recent lay-off or firing.

Done feeling stessed out, underpaid, under-appreciated, and underdeveloped… and you’re done with not knowing what steps to change things.
Whether you are re-entering the workforce after a break, you were laid off and need to reposition your skills to a new employer, you're looking for a complete career overhaul, or you want to achieve your career goals faster. There is a way to get from here to there, and I can help.
Here's how I can help:
Hi, I'm career transition strategist.
Over the span of my 20 year career, I've made multiple, major, career transitions.
- Made the leap from being a social worker to leading the training function of multi-million dollar corporations.
- Laid-off, took a year off just for fun, then repositioned myself in the market.
- Moved from public service to the corporate sector.
- Doubled my salary in one transition after evaluating my skills, finances, and deciding I was worth more than I was making.
I understand how to make major career transitions because I have done it... many times and in many ways!
I’ve also been on the hiring side. I have reviewed countless resumes and conducted interviews for hundreds of candidates. I know what hiring managers want to see and I love helping people overcome barriers to major career transitions and job satisfaction.
"Amie recognized what I was truly passionate about, even when I did not."
Amie recognized what I was truly passionate about, even when I did not. She was able to show me alignment between my skills and a career path I had dismissed because of my lack of formal education on the topic. Amie showed me how to bridge from sales operations to instructional design, showing me that my willingness to help others and my problem solving was more organically linked to training. This shift has been immensely fulfilling, allowing me to illuminate learning and development to others in new ways. I feel braver and more confident in my abilities and am better able to trust my instincts because I am more closely aligned with my purpose."

"Because of Amie's guidance in navigating my career, I was promoted within 8 months of starting my new position."
About a year ago, I moved to a new city and decided to take on a new challenge with my career. My previous education and experiences were based solely in chemistry but I was interested in transitioning into a career in e-commerce merchandising. Amie helped me navigate the ropes and quickly changing environment to set myself up for success. She made me feel comfortable in an environment where I lacked business experience and was nervous that I would never catch up to my co-workers. My interactions with Amie instilled an invaluable confidence in myself and recommendations that will help me excel in the future. Because of Amie's guidance in navigating my career, I was promoted within 8 months of starting my new position. I am excelling in ways I never thought were possible.
