I'm Amy, a Sustainable Business and Design Consultant from Seattle, WA.
I specialize in a stakeholder-centric approach to helping companies determine what sustainability means for their unique business. By drawing on expertise in research, analysis, and design, I translate the complex and the ambiguous into the understandable and actionable.
Working to make a difference, one organization at a time.
I've always had a passion for creative problem solving, and I am thrilled to bring my interdisciplinary skill set to your organization. With a foundation in consumer product design, a graduate education in sustainability and business, and continuous development of leadership and facilitation skills, I am ready to tackle any challenge–no matter how complex or ambiguous! Contact me today, and let's start a conversation about what I can do for you and your organization.
My interdisciplinary background delivers creative results.
In my adult life I've dabbled in a number of professional circles, never quite feeling fully a part of any of them. Thanks to a colleague and friend of mine, I now happily consider myself a multipotentialite, taking on an array of different specialties depending on the task at hand.

Much of my work revolves around the core concept of turning the complex and ambiguous into the understandable. To illustrate this in one of my favorite mediums, I've taken inspiration from card & board games to present a selection of my previous work as trading cards.
Serving clients across industries, from startups to complex corporations.
Partnering with leading edge sustainability professionals.
I regularly collaborate on multi-consultant teams for the projects I take on, many of which are through PGS Consults.
