When it comes to healthcare, Amy's experience is broad and deep. With 25 years of nursing experience and 20 years of progressive leadership positions I have a unique lens on the business and practice of healthcare.


In particular, Amy is passionate about advancing the role and visibility of nurses in business, advocating for healthcare quality, and empowering organizations to achieve outstanding results through technology and best practices.

Amy is a certified member of the John Maxwell Team, and has served as a mentor with the AONL and ANA. She also serves as a Magnet Appraiser with the ANCC. This glimpse into current best practices and innovations lend credence to the drive behind her everyday practice. She currently works as the Enterprise VP for Nursing Excellence and Professional Development for Centura Health, stationed in Centennial, Colorado. 

Over the course of her career, she has developed a love for coaching and a determination to build high-performance organizations that make a difference in both patients' and communities' well being.


When not working in nursing, I enjoy empowering women through entrepreneurship, proudly watching my two active girls in their various activities, or video chatting with my eldest daughter, son-in-law, and grandson, who serves in the Air Force.
