About Amy

I am in awe at the wisdom of our body, the power of our mind, and the beauty of our soul that shines from within.

Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated and curious about the deeper spiritual questions in life, the human body and how it all fits together.

I remember lying in bed as a young girl and thinking so deeply about what was there BEFORE God created the heaven and earth?... I couldn't figure out how could God be everywhere at the same time?...I was curious how Jesus could heal the sick?...and how does the brain really work?...

Fast forward to now and I still love to explore the these same topics. I geek out on quantum physics, the evolution of human consciousness, and various forms of healing practices. I also treasure deep connections and meaningful relationships. 

 Personal Facts:

Professional Bio and Educational Background

For much of my career I have been an innovative nurse leader, educator and role model in holistic nursing with a proven track record for transforming the way healthcare is delivered. Over 30 years experience as a registered nurse in a variety of roles, with the last 20 focusing on holistic nursing, staff wellbeing and building integrative models of care within a hospital, a large healthcare system and a long term care system.

 

I have been fortunate to partner with many other innovative nurse leaders over the years and am honored to have my master's work on Graceful Presence published in the book,"Holistic Nursing : A handbook for practice" 4th edition, and the work of starting integrative nursing programs in Senior care published in the book, "Integrative Nursing" 2nd edition. Being able to share this work as a speaker, both nationally and internationally is such a pleasure. 

 

Along side my nursing career I have launched a personal coaching practice, wellness business, and taught dance/movement classes for deepening the mind/body/spirit connection.

Currently I am moving forward and spreading this work in new ways through online courses, retreats, keynote speaking, organizational consulting and 1:1 personalized coaching and healing practices.
