Amy is an energetic, professional, organized, and talented marketing leader. We hired her to build and execute on the annual marketing and PR plans for each of three major marketing segments and she delivered. Amy is exceptional at writing copy, producing meaningful deliverables, communicating priorities, and managing projects and budgets. She is fully experienced in the most modern and traditional marketing methods and works hand-in-hand with the sales team. I am a big fan of Amy and I continue to endorse her as a highly valuable marketing leader.
James Owen Gallagher, Vice President of Sales, IMPREV
Hired & Managed Amy as Director of Marketing at Imprev.
Amy possesses the full spectrum of marketing and brand management skills combined with intelligence, common sense, enthusiasm, energy and commitment. With limited resources, Amy single-handedly developed the Kestrel brand into the recognized world leader in tough, hand-held weather instruments and revived the NK Rowing brand first in our customers’ minds and hearts. Amy is an effective and detail-oriented budget manager (independently managed $500k budgets), a hard-driving print buyer, a fantastic copy-writer, a strategic thinker, a skilled graphic artist, a conscientious people manager, a strong project manager, and a fast learner and worker. To the all important question “Would you hire Amy again?”, I can answer an unequivocal – YES!
Alix James Kocher, CEO, Nielsen-Kellerman
Hired & managed Amy for 9 years at Nielsen-Kellerman.
Amy has contributed immensely on the Net Impact Seattle Professional Chapter board. She reconstructed the chapter’s website, which seamlessly combines elegance, clarity and functionality – all within a platform that is user-friendly & adaptable, even for our tech-UN-savvy board members. Her web skills are top notch, and our efforts of expanding and fulfilling our mission would not be possible without Amy’s expertise in the online marketing arena.
Claudia Frere, Manager, Environmental Stewardship & Sustainability at Univ of Washington

Amy may have been the most competent, quick-thinking, positive, and responsive client contact of any of our 40-50 clients/90-100 contacts during her time working with us at Neilsen-Kellerman. I recommend her highly for any company considering her as an employee or business partner. Please feel free to contact me for any further information as well.
Edward Hewitt, Owner, Row2k Media
Amy managed the Nielsen-Kellerman account with Ed.
Amy is first and foremost, a consummate professional. She is innovative and action-oriented with the ability to take an idea, drill it down to an actionable plan and build a marketing plan around it. Her uncanny organizational ability, essential to keeping any large project on track, was tested time and again by forces that could change direction at any given moment, Amy had the ability to redirect those forces back to the original goal when needed, but at the same time, the flexibility to change direction if that was the best course of action. As a marketing professional, she can manage several diverse projects, from PR to sales marketing support to SEO management, and manage them well.
Kirsten Robertson, Sr. Account Manager & Director of Training, IMPREV
Worked in conjunction with Amy at IMPREV.
The one aspect of Amy as a professional that stands out the most to me can only be described as “level.” Amy has a knack for staying very level throughout the work process enabling her to execute appropriately and freeing her to produce her best. That is not to say she doesn’t care. In fact, I would go as far as to say she is passionate, though she doesn’t let her emotions (or emotions of others) get in the way of the big picture goal. Her work and her relationships at work are always the better for it. On top of that, Amy is driven, very good on her feet – a trait I envy – and creatively talented to boot.
Chris Mesigian, Brand Activation Manager, Advanced Sports Inc.
Worked with Amy for 7 years at Nielsen-Kellerman as Performance Electronics Sales Manager.
First of all, Amy is an absolute pleasure to work with. Her combination of marketing expertise, leadership, organization and creativity would be a tremendous asset to any company. I was always impressed with Amy’s ability to lead and organize multiple projects simultaneously, while still managing each project with great attention to detail. Amy would be a great addition to any organization she chooses to work with and I would love the opportunity to work together with her again in the future.
Tony Jackson, Account Manager, Sesame Communications
Amy managed Tony as a Sales Associate at IMPREV.
Amy is an insightful, diligent, highly organized manager who is able to break out of the box to foster innovation and creativity. An impressive multi-tasker, no amount of work seems to ruffle her feathers. She is a decisive, confident leader and a team player who gets to know her colleagues in just about every department. Amy stays in touch with customer desires and industry fluctuations while acquiring a thorough knowledge of company products, and is therefore able to offer invaluable feedback to her colleagues. She expertly networks outside the company in order to get a job done, to promote a brand, or to delve into a new market segment.
