The thing is, we like people. We're in for the stories and the relationships, and the magic that happens when the right group of people comes together. Chances are, if you're looking to make your team stronger, you've already built a great product. We'll help you motivate that team and create a strong culture so you can work toward building a great company, too.
We can't wait to get started.
How we work.
Lead with empathy; default to trust.
We work with people who make us better.
Flexibility and collaboration are key.
Investing in people pays dividends.
More isn't always the answer.
Just because it's always been done a way, doesn't mean it's the best way.
Time kills all deals.
Principal, Chief People Officer and Start-up Advisor
Amy is a strategic partner for founders and investors and a growth catalyst for companies on the rise. Central to her work, of course, is the development and nurturing of a company’s culture. Whether the focus is on foundational elements, like defining core values and communication practices or developing more mature programs like performance development and engagement initiatives, it’s all in service to ensure that the culture is intentional and aligned with the company’s financial goals and retention objectives.
For the last decade, Amy was Chief People Officer for global fintech leader, Kabbage, Inc, where she scaled the company from under 20 employees in one city to over 600 across the US and India. She was responsible for building the company’s award-winning culture, driving engagement, and guiding all people strategy initiatives. Additionally, she oversaw the integration of M+A teams to build and grow capabilities across a diversity of cultures and geographies.
Before joining Kabbage full-time, she ran a consulting firm called A to Z HR Solutions, Inc. for several years that served as a recruiting and culture partner for growing technology companies across Atlanta. Before starting A to Z, she worked at a small fintech company called Visionary Systems as a recruiter, people leader and culture enthusiast before their acquisition by TransUnion. Right out of college, she worked as a drug counselor, court arbitrator, and social worker.
She graduated from the University of South Florida with a (completely irrelevant) degree in Criminology.

Previously, she spent fifteen years developing, implementing and managing branded communications programs, content, platforms and culture initiatives for Turner, Time Warner, TNT, TBS, CNN, truTV, TCM, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, among others. Additionally, she’s worked with a variety of top tier branding and digital development agencies to promote and enhance the global networks, websites and communications channels for which she was responsible.
