About Amy, Talk for Success

Drawing on over 30 years’ experience in teaching, writing and working in the arts

Drawing on over 30 years’ experience in teaching, writing and working in the arts, Amy has developed an expertise in communication as well as a skill for enabling others to communicate effectively. As an alumni admission interviewer for Northwestern University, Amy has interviewed hundreds of the area’s highest achieving high school students, giving her a unique perspective on what makes an already-qualified candidate stand out.

Furthermore, her background as a high school and university English instructor has also honed her ability to teach others how to write with clarity, persuasion and voice. In addition to helping students maximize their opportunities for university admissions, Amy has worked with individuals looking to enter the workforce or making a career change. She has advised local politicians on presentation skills and oral communication strategies. She accepts private clients from both corporations and individuals anywhere in the United States.

When Amy isn't consulting, she donates her time to lecturing both high school & college student athletes; specifically baseball, basketball, and football players all over the Pittsburgh Area and in Atlanta, GA. Amy has spoken at the following Pittsburgh High Schools: South Fayette, West Allegheny, Pine Richland, Aliquippa, Thomas Jefferson, and Bell Vernon. In addition, Amy has lectured to the baseball teams at University of Pittsburgh, Point Park University, and Georgia State. This fall, she will be addressing the baseball teams at Kennesaw State & Georgia Tech in Atlanta.
