Amy is a Certified Professional Life Coach and holds a Master of Arts in Exercise Physiology and Cardiac Rehabilitation from Adelphi University. She got her Bachelor of Science in Physical Education from SUNY Cortland with her concentrations in Exercise Physiology and Corporate Fitness and a double minor in Sociology and English. Throughout Amy's 30 year career she has been guiding, coaching and counseling people through life transitions, and this has always been the favorite and most rewarding part of her work.
Amy grew up in Brooklyn, New York and after her schooling she stayed in NY and worked in Manhattan for 10 years. For five years she was the Director of Sports Training Institute(STI), a premier personal training and physical therapy center. She was responsible for hiring, training and managing 46 personal trainers. Amy enjoyed working with a long list of famous people during her career, including John Kennedy Jr., Mayor Edward Koch, Michael Douglas, Sandy Duncan, Liza Minnelli, Laura Branigan, Arthur Ashe, Richard Lefrak, Roberta Flack and many more! She also designed, staffed and managed fitness facilities in various corporations including Morgan Stanley, E.F. Hutton and American Express. During this time, she was responsible for all fitness testing, evaluation and exercise prescription for the top executives of these companies. After her time at STI she moved on to become the Senior Manager at The NY Health and Racquet Club in Greenwich Village, where she mastered the business side of the fitness industry and started her formal sales training.
Amy has lived in Ithaca, NY for 23 years. For 5 years she was the Sales and Marketing Manager at Courtside Racquet and Fitness Club and then started a fitness consulting company, Cayuga Fitness Consultants, which grew to having 15 trainers and realizing success for several years. After selling the company, Amy taught as an adjunct professor at Tompkins Cortland Community College (TC3) in their Health and Physical Education Departments for 6 years. During this time she also taught graduate classes at Cortland State University in their Exercise Science program.
In 2003 Amy took a position as Sales and Marketing Manager at Alterra, now called Brookdale Senior Living. Due to her local success she was promoted to Regional Sales Manager of New York State in 2005. After one year in this position and the realization that excessive business travel and being away from her family was not her favorite, she stepped back into her role as Sales Manager on the Ithaca campus, counseling families seeking assistance for their loved ones in assisted living at Sterling House and Clare Bridge. Over the past 11 years Amy has become an elder care specialist, guiding over 1000 families through the process and creating a huge network of healthcare professionals. During this time she has served on the Board of Directors of Lifelong Senior Center, sat on committees for the Office for the Aging in Tompkins County and the Alzheimer's Association of Central New York, and served on the Community Advisory Board of the Ithaca College Gerontology Institute.
In her free time Amy loves to spend time with her close friends and family, enjoy the outdoors, listen to music and sip good wine. She loves the Adirondacks and Cape Cod, and her favorite place is being at the beach on a sunny day. She lives happily with her partner of 20 years and their son, and considers herself to be extremely fortunate for the wonderful life she has.
