Having hired and managed staff for over fifteen years, I bring a real world perspective to the needs of employers as well as job seekers. And, being a consummate networker, I keep up with trends and make contacts in the environmental field. I leverage that experience to mentor and counsel those seeking careers in this field.

I am happy to work with students, recent college graduates, and professionals to identify and communicate core interests and skills, explore potential jobs and sectors, and develop effective job-seeking strategies. I can provide invaluable feedback, coaching, and support throughout the process. 


I also mentor clean tech startups, helping them think about their strategic value, identify sustainability goals, making connections and more.

"Amy was a Sustainability Mentor to my company for the Cleantech Open Northeast Accelerator this summer. She is a true expert in the field of sustainability, is extremely thorough in her work, and is overall just a wonderful person to work with. She helped us think through the kind of business we want to run long-term, and to think deeply about our sustainability practices. She is a great communicator, and always offers constructive feedback in a thoughtful manner. Amy always arrived at our meetings having read through every line of our deliverables, offering feedback, creative ideas, and copy edits. Her attention to detail and commitment to helping us was unparalleled. Most importantly, it is thanks to Amy and her vast network in the Boston-area, that we were able to conduct so many customer discovery interviews! She has made several introductions on our behalf, and even continues to do so today. Amy was our nomination for the Sustainability Mentor of the Year award. I highly recommend Amy’s expertise for any organization that is looking for strategies to design, improve, or build sustainable practices and policies.”
