Amy helped me discover such important lessons about who I am and what I want to achieve. After working with her, I feel confident that I know what I am meant to do, what my career goals are, and how I am going to achieve them. I have a much deeper understanding of the factors of a job that matter most to me, and I even have a vision of what I’d like my ‘retirement’ to look like and a plan to get there.

Working with Amy is a treat. She’s a great coach who strives to understand my background, asks thought-provoking questions, and guides me to identify my obstacles in a non-judgmental way. I feel very comfortable discussing challenges that might hinder my personal and professional growth. Amy is also very good at keeping a focus on our conversation so it would result in assignments towards achieving the grand objective- a fulfilling life and career. I thought I could rely on my friends and family to provide feedback and advice in life, but I definitely benefited from Amy’s fresh perspective and approach.

Toe Dip

This is the entry level package. It includes an Energy Leadership Assessment (ELI) that will uncover your current resonating level of energy (based on perceptions, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors). In one session, I will debrief you on your results and then we will identify strategies you can implement to make noticeable improvements in your life.

Partial Plunge

This includes nine coaching sessions.  We will uncover the limiting beliefs that are holding you back and rewire your negative thoughts.  Then, we will start to "dream big" and identify the job/industry that most embodies you. We take the dream through a feasibility check to ensure it checks all your boxes then create a game plan to help you secure your dream job.

About Amy Sanchez

Old Me

Director of Marketing, short-tempered, always rushing, not fulfilled, full of self-doubt, depleted.

New Me        

Serving others and running my own show, patient, relaxed, fulfilled, confident and optimistic, grateful.

The Breaking Point

For 13 years, I worked my way up the ladder in healthcare marketing, enjoying portions of my job and pushing through the areas I didn’t enjoy.  I was repeatedly ignoring the dream I had to help people and, in the process, underutilizing my natural gifts.  Then, something happened that crystalized my priorities.  In the span of three weeks, I had my first child and my grandfather died.  I suddenly realized two things: my happiness was no longer just about me and life can slip away at any moment.  That realization gave me the strength to explore the question: am I meant to be doing something different?  I worked with a coach and did the hard work to figure out what I really wanted to do and realized, my calling was to serve others as a career coach.  And now, I LOVE what I do.

My Approach

I believe, and have repeatedly seen, that the power to create change lies inside you.  But you must first realize you need to make a change.  Once you do, my role is to walk by your side and shine a lantern while we explore the caves of your conscious and unconscious mind.  I combine my logic from my MBA-mindset with my natural intuition to help you unearth insights that, at times, will be uncomfortable and other times, extremely satisfying.  Different from a friend (I reserve judgment at all times) or a therapist (I’m not looking to diagnose your ailments), my role will be to help you discover what’s possible to create the best version of yourself you can be.  We will explore some new depths together.  And we will definitely have some fun and laughs along the way.

Client Praise

 
I was hesitant when seeking out Amy as a coach because I had never done this kind of thing before. I wasn’t even quite sure what I was hoping to accomplish. Amy quickly distilled these hesitations. She asked questions that challenged me, pulling me out of my comfort zone and guided me. This was exactly what I needed, without realizing it. I came away tools to better manage my day to day and propel me forward. I look forward to follow up sessions and recommend her to anyone who is seeking clarity, whether it be professional or personal.
— Kerri, Sales & Marketing Professional
Meeting with Amy was an incredibly helpful experience. Not only did she make me feel comfortable sharing a great deal about myself and my struggles, by the end of our conversation, she gave me the clarity I needed to feel confident in my decision. I’m so glad she’s a trusted resource for me now.
— Courtnee, Principal Evaluation Consultant at Kaiser Permanente
Amy is an amazing coach. I came to her seeking help with some struggles I was having at work, but what I didn’t expect is that I needed guidance in my personal life as well. She is extremely amiable 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. Every session was therapeutic and eye opening, however I had to work at it every day to see the results and improvements. The homework Amy assigned during each session were relevant to push me forward, to get me to the place I needed to be and feel positive.

— Leslie, VP of Marketing at ZapLabs
Working with Amy was extremely helpful as I was navigating a reoccurring challenge at work. Through her thoughtful and methodical process, she helped me to reframe my interpretation of the situation to one that was less stressful and daunting. Amy helped me hone in on the root of the issue and create an action plan to improve the situation almost immediately. Now, a challenge that used to constantly plague me has significantly lessened and I am able to move forward and focus my time and attention on other areas.

I truly appreciate Amy’s straightforward coaching approach and keen business sense. I wholeheartedly recommend Amy to anyone looking for a career reboot!
— Haley, VP of Human Resources at Blue Shield

— Michael, Investment Manager at Parker Value Partners
Amy is a powerful coach who comes with my full recommendation. In the time we worked together she coached me through everything from paying off $10,000 worth of debt (done!), creating a budget, to losing 5 lbs! More importantly she helped me to address the underlying blocks and limiting beliefs that prevented me from accomplishing these goals in the first place. Amy has a warm, inviting demeanor balanced with holding you accountable. She’ll inspire you to reach for the stars all while staying true to your core values.
— Betty, Communications Manager at Dignity Health

Working with Amy has made me realize that I never really defined my end goal which is why I wasn’t finding it. She’s helped me identify what I want in life overall. There’s something very powerful about Amy’s style that completely put me at ease and helped me be really honest with myself. I call it “the magic of Amy” and I’m so glad I decided to work with her! She’s truly gifted and one of a kind!
— Sally, National Accounts Director at Johnson & Johnson
My career thus far has encompassed numerous roles which have given me the opportunity to pick up new skills as well as expand my portfolio to cover a myriad of job functions. Through all this, I felt that I was missing a key ingredient that would help me determine where to steer my career path. Instead of being a ship sailing at the mercy of the wind, I wanted the ability to steer my future on a course that I would chart.

I engaged Amy Sanchez as a Career Coach to help me understand a basic question, “what’s next?”. Through our sessions, Amy and I delved into the mechanics of what motivates me, what I am looking for and how I could progress towards my goals. What I received was more than the typical exercise to update my resume and draft a really jaw dropping cover letter. These sessions went beyond the norm to help me better understand how my career has progressed and how to move forward. A map has many points and through these sessions I was able to identify the right points to connect to in order to chart my career path.

Engaging in career coaching often carries a stigma that it is only for those individuals who are in a dead end career. I can attest that the statement is untrue. Sometimes you just need someone to help you remove the noise around you so that you can see clearly. Amy can help you with that. Her techniques, tips and feedback empower you to do more. If anyone is looking to get a fresh perspective on where they are with their current careers, then I would highly recommend that you engage Amy for coaching. Your journey should only end when you want it to.
