Client Testimonials

My clients say I’m realistic, intentional, to-the-point, observant and decisive. I create simplicity, space and efficiency.

I’ve had the privilege of working with some incredible people over the years. 

Here’s what they have to say.

“As a former Head of School, Aimee brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the table. Her ability to listen, understand, ask brilliant questions and offer practical solutions is truly impressive. Aimee’s coaching style creates the time and framing I need to reflect, recalibrate and reorganize my thinking – which has led to marked positive results in my school leadership abilities. Aimee’s passion for education and her commitment to supporting school leaders is unparalleled, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to enhance their leadership skills in order to drive success in their school community.”

Steve Bileca, Head of School, Vail Mountain School, Vail, CO

“Aimee has been my coach for the last several months during a time of growth and transition at my school. She has helped me navigate current challenges, reconnect with my core values, and see more of my own worth in a career that is incredibly rewarding, yet very demanding. This was the best investment for myself and my career. I highly recommend her as a leadership coach!”

Lynette Goss, Head of School, Walnut Farm Montessori School

“Working with Aimee during my first year as a Head of School has been such a pleasure. She provides balance and clarity and knows how to center me when I need it—reminding me of my core values. Aimee is empathetic and patient, yet she knows when to challenge my thinking. I highly recommend Aimee!

Nicole Girvan, Head of School, The Logan School for Creative Learning

“In my work with Aimee, she could always be relied on to bring a spirit of curiosity to any problem, particularly those that were complex and rife with challenging human dynamics. She is always thoughtful about whose voices are represented in conversations and solutions and whose are missing, illustrating her deeply held commitment to the dignity of human beings and everyone’s right to inclusion and representation. I am a better leader and person for knowing and working with Aimee, and you will be too!”

Colleen Schilly, Associate Head of School, Hillbrook School, Los Gatos, CA

It was a gift to work with Aimee as my leadership coach during a time of transition. She was personal, curious, and helped me ground deeply in my core values. I keep her tools close at hand in my daily life and work as a school leader.”

Sarah Barton Thomas, Head of Lower School, Sandy Spring Friends School

“Aimee’s open-hearted, direct, and inspiring nature was a tremendous gift on my journey. She helped me refocus how I want to show up in the world and reminded me of what is already inside of me. This was a powerful and deeply meaningful experience for me. Aimee has a true gift and passion for coaching and anyone who is ready to show up big in the world will be grateful to work with her.”

Carly Fox, History-Social Studies Teacher, Castilleja School, Palo Alto, CA

“As a coach, Aimee somehow manages to teach me a ton while at the same time connecting me more deeply to my own innate wisdom. In a single session, she might provide a space for me to talk about a challenge I feel worried or embarrassed about, teach me a neuroscience framework to help me validate and also reframe the challenge, and support me in reconnecting with my own values and confidence. I often leave a session thinking simultaneously that I knew what to do all along, and that I never would have figured out what to do without Aimee. I would recommend Aimee to anyone who is seeking a smart, caring, skilled partner for working through the intellectual, practical, interpersonal, and emotional challenges that come with meaningful work in schools. Aimee is the best!”

Laura Hansen, English Teacher, Castilleja School, Palo Alto, CA

“What I valued most in my time working with Aimee is her refreshing honesty and straightforwardness paired with deep compassion, and an intuition and insight that gets right to the heart of any matter. With her aid, I was able to navigate with a bit of grace some truly murky emotional waters and come out on the other side feeling more clarity and strength to stay present to myself and my values through a difficult time in my life.”
