I highly recommend that people work with Amanda at least once in their life. Amanda has a foundation of knowledge and core values that are solid – and she lives by them. She has a keen ability to see through the façade that people can put up, and you must be willing to have deep conversations with her. I point strongly toward the coaching sessions I’ve had with Amanda as the reason why I lead more fully by my core values.
