Amy values the long-term relationships she shares with her clients.  She has helped companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Caterpillar Inc., CNA Insurance, Intel, McDonald’s, Motorola, Spencer Stuart, TreeHouse Foods, USG Corporation, and US Foods, transform their businesses and their leadership in fundamental ways, and each experience has taught her practical lessons with broad relevance for other organizations.
