Amy Yip Coaching

Amy is a Life Transformation and Mental Fitness coach who works with high-achieving, ambitious women tap into their potential and bridge the gap between where they are now and where they want to be (even if that destination isn’t totally clear yet). Her passion for coaching is to empower people to realize their full potential, let go of the ‘shoulds’ and author their own life story because if you don’t tell your story, someone else will.

 

In January 2020, after 16+ years of building and leading global teams in organizations like Google, Clorox, and Booz Allen, Amy left the corporate world, sold everything, and took a 1-way flight to Ghana with her husband to volunteer at a breast cancer non-profit and travel the world. COVID shifted their plans; they got stuck in Ghana for 7 months.

 

She believes: Your mindset, NOT your circumstance, makes all the difference in your happiness and success.

 

Through this lens, she works with clients to find their voice, the courage to speak up, build self-confidence, navigate change, and discover what they REALLY want for their next chapter.

 

Amy's an ICF PCC, Certified Hudson Institute Coach, and a pioneer Mental Fitness Coach. She holds a MBA from Anderson UCLA, and a BS in Computer Science, BA in Communications from UMD.
