Creating Cultures of Kindness & Compassion through Self Change

Throughout the many changes in my life and career as a nurse, one thing has remained the same, an insatiable desire to challenge the status quo and champion women as they reclaim their personal power. As a catalyst for change, I believe that self-leadership is the key to creating positive change in your life, career, and in the world. I believe my mission is to lead a revolution of women who lead with kindness, empathy and compassion and who have a desire to create more connection in the world. 

I am a proud nurse and founder & CEO of the International Network of Nurse Leaders, host of the Shift Change podcast for nurses and author of “Unshelf Yourself” the book for women who need to put themselves back on their priority list. A small town girl at heart, I am a country music junkie, pretty sure tequila is my superpower and I’ve been known to wear  high heels in the cow-pasture.

“First of all I wanted to thank [Amy] so much for the amazing and life-changing coaching call today! The tough love worked because I signed up for the educational portion for doing my LC (Lacation Consultant Certification). I feel so amazing right now, thank you thank you thank you!! The changes I’ve made have influenced me both professional and personally.”  – Jen W.

unshelf yourself

Choose You. Change your life.

I get it. You are burned out, exhausted, running on empty trying to meet all the demads of your daily life. Reading some book that tells you to take time for yourself is the last thing on your to-do list. But friends? Nothing changes if no one changes. It’s up to you.

It’s time to get back to yourself. It’s time to stop putting your dreams and desires on the shelf. It’s time to unshelf yourself.


So often we get stuck on autopilot that we can’t even begin to imagine what life could look like. Change becomes so overwhelming and scary that we opt to stay stuck instead of creating a life on-purpose.

As a self-proclaimed catalyst for change, I can help you see that more is possible … and that you can start making changes, today. My Ignite Change system is designed to meet you where you are at – so let’s get started – today.
