Hi, I'm Amy Simpson. I'm privileged to introduce myself to you. I'm a passionate leader, communicator, and coach who loves to encourage people to discern and fulfill their calling in this life. I work as an author, a personal and professional coach, a speaker, a freelance writer, and an editor. I have been a writer for 20 years, authoring numerous resources for Christian ministry, including my newest book, Anxious: Choosing Faith in A World of Worry, and the award-winning Troubled Minds: Mental Illness and The Church's Mission (both InterVarsity Press).
As a coach, I am trained and certified (CPCC) through the Coaches Training Institute, the industry's most rigorous and highly respected training program. I also hold an MBA from the University of Colorado and more than 20 years of experience as a creative professional, corporate leader, and executive. I am also a woman of faith, and I seek to support others in their personal, professional, and spiritual growth while welcoming clients from all faith backgrounds.
A former publishing executive, I serve as senior editor of Leadership Journal. My background includes a unique career path through both the editorial and business sides of publishing, including for-profit and nonprofit organizational leadership.
I am deeply in love with my incredible husband, Trevor, and extremely proud of our two fantastic kids. I live with these wonderful people in the suburbs of Chicago, where I am committed to using the gifts God has given me in work that changes the world.
