She helped me to face the uncomfortable truths I did not want to face, but really needed to, in order to move forward with my life. I was able to identify my top values and as a result, I have found it easier to make life choices and pursue my personal goals because I know what matters most in my life. Ami has made such a deep and positive impact on my life and I am truly grateful for her guidance."

- Francesca M., HR Professional and Coach, Expat in Indianapolis

- Hangmei, Sales Manager, Toronto (event host)
"Thank you, Ami, for being our guest speaker in the Enhancing Economic Opportunities for Older Workers job-search workshop series. You really nailed it. ‘How to Focus on You’ was the right blend of: we know you’re doing 'this' and here’s how to help yourself. During a job-search, it’s too easy to compare yourself to other employed people or to think that other unemployed people are getting more interviews than you are. The group exercises and moments of self-reflection during this session were valuable steps towards realizing that your own journey is the important one, and you explained in a very relatable, encouraging manner how to place your attention and value on yourself. It’s an absolute pleasure working with you.”
- Meg M., Educational Program Associate, Toronto (event host)

“Ami is a very experienced speaker in career coaching. I coordinated a mentorship program helping international trained professionals with employment support and invited her to deliver a workshop on Building a Positive Relationship at Work to my clients. Ami provided practical tips on building positive relationships with employers and mentors. We find it essential to have an expert, like Ami, to deliver this content so our clients will be equipped with quality knowledge for their future career success. The material was well prepared, and she’s very well spoken. I highly recommend her for future workshops!”
- Larissa, L., Program Coordinator (event host)
"Ami was always very approachable and she made sure each of us always had a chance to speak and express ourselves. I feel like the sessions helped me become more self-aware of my actions and my leadership skills as a project manager. One of the biggest challenges I had was receiving feedback without feeling like a failure. Ami provided me with tools and techniques to combat that fear of feedback and how to turn the negatives into an opportunity to improve myself. I highly recommend Ami to anyone who is looking to improve themselves and become more aware of their strengths and skills."
- Tanya M., Project Coordinator, Toronto

"It helped to have someone who doesn't know me, and without an agenda to force me to explain my thoughts"
Rory B., Copy Editor, Toronto
"Ami was a guest speaker in the Career Seminar Series when I was a Humber College student in the Human Resources Management Program. She provided valuable insight from her own HR journey through labour relations, organizational development and change management. She is an engaging communicator who listens carefully to her audience's questions and provides pertinent career advice. Ami taught me how to recognize transferrable skills from one industry to another, and from one aspect of HR to another."

"Ami was very approachable and understanding, her passion for her work was evident in the sessions as demonstrated by her engagement with everyone. Ami’s communication and facilitation style were excellent, she used a mixture of participation group exercises and discussions to introduce new material and concepts, which was great as it promoted team building and healthy intelligent conversations amongst us. Her passion and commitment had a positive impact on me personally, I learned to be more confident in myself first and foremost along with many other valuable skills. However, one thing that really had an impact on me and was my greatest learning was the self-development exercises which allowed me to get a truly better understanding and sense of myself. This has continued to be a positive impact on me personally and professionally and I have Ami to thank for that."
