Client Coordinator, Associate Executive Function Coach
Amy takes great joy in connecting with people of all ages and experiences, and desires to support others with a gentle and encouraging spirit. Learning to overcome her past school challenges, she has empathy as she uses her skills to help others feel less overwhelmed by the daily demands of life and school. Amy also understands the unique joys and challenges of parenting a child with ADHD. Learning about ADHD, the impact it has on executive function, and her eagerness to work with those struggling, fuels her passion for coaching. It is her belief that we are a work in progress and aren’t meant to figure it all out on our own.
Amy has lived in Northern Virginia for almost 20 years with her supportive and encouraging husband. You can usually find them on a ball field or cheering on the Nats with their 4 energetic kids! Amy loves to spend time with neighbors, friends, family and her church community.
