Executive Function Coach
B.A. History, Geography, Indigenous Studies
B. Ed.

Amy is a passionate educator with 14 years of dynamic experience in and out of the classroom, working with learners from preschool to the university level. Amy began her career providing front-line, specialized support for clients with complex needs, working closely with their primary team: family members, psychologists, teachers, and other professionals. Since then, Amy has held various teaching positions throughout Alberta ranging from kindergarten to high school. Thanks to the COVID pandemic, Amy has begun virtually coaching university students while working towards a Master’s of Psychology and Counselling through Yorkville University.

Amy graduated with a specialization in Indigenous Education and began her teaching career in an Indigenous community, helping shape her personal and educational outlooks by drawing from the Medicine Wheel, which represents the alignment and continuous interactions of the physical, emotional, mental, and social parts of each individual. Amy has a deeply genuine interest in all humans, knowing that everyone’s story, perspective, and experience are distinctive, valid, and important. Her authentic approach is apparent in all of her interactions, exhibited through her kindness, compassion, and individualistic attention. Beginning wherever they are, she discovers each student’s personal strengths and unique obstacles along their path. Experience has shown Amy that building open and honest connection with yourself and others supports increased self-awareness, and the freedom to move closer to your goals and your deepest, most exceptional individual potential.

Amy knows “the struggle is real”, because she has lived it, first-hand. A well-mannered student, Amy silently struggled to reach the level she was fully capable of, in all areas of her life, barely making it into university. Lacking effective habits and strategies, Amy began her self-coaching journey in post-secondary (“I wish I had Kaizen then!”) and was able to successfully graduate university with two degrees and attain her life goal of becoming a teacher.

“My own academic journey has been a humbling one, but I can personally attest that the right team, personalized toolkit, and intentional mindset were essential allies”.

Amy now consistently does things outside of her comfort zone – whether it is studying yoga in India for her 200-hour RYT certification, hiking to the base camp of Mount Everest, starting a master’s degree, or joining the incredible Kaizen team!

Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer to your question, please contact us and we’ll get right back to you.
How does Kaizen determine what my child’s Executive Skills strengths and deficits are?
We are data collectors. We gather as much relevant data regarding your child's learning as possible. This includes feedback from the parents, educational psychological assessments (if available), information from Kaizen's free questionnaire, and any school evaluations or assessments that can be shared with us.

Kaizen has partnered with Mindprint Learning, creator of the world’s leading online cognitive test developed by neuroscientists in the Brain Behavior Laboratory at Penn State University’s Perelman School of Medicine. This Learning Profile Assessment, combined with two, 1:1 consultations with Kaizen’s Director gives you a clear picture of where your child shines and where they need support.

Learn more about the Learning Profile Assessment.

We also offer a FREE online questionnaire to help you identify your child’s Executive Functioning needs & strengths before committing to the Coaching Intake Process.

Is Kaizen Coaching the same as tutoring?
No. Tutoring teaches students WHAT to learn; Kaizen teaches students HOW to learn and WHY it’s important. The essence of Kaizen Education Services is to foster results through incremental steps, focused on building confidence through understanding. Our objective is to highlight the importance of establishing differentiated processes and systems that contribute to the overall long-term personal and academic growth of each learner. Empowering brains for learning and life. Skills that can be applied across your child’s entire curriculum and beyond.
How does my child start their coaching sessions with Kaizen?
Contact us to book your intake, and we will match your child with a coach so that they can get started.
My child has had a psychoeducational assessment completed and needs help. Is Kaizen the right fit?
Certainly! Oftentimes, a psychoeducational assessment is completed and results are shared, but lack guidance and support for the appropriate next steps leaving you, the parent, wondering, “What now?” If strategies are provided, you are often left to your own devices which can create additional frustration.

The curriculum from which Kaizen operates is tailored to your child and their very specific needs. By sharing the results of your child’s psychoeducational assessment with your child’s coach, we can work together to best support your child academically, intellectually, and beyond.

My child has ADHD. How can Kaizen Coaching help?
Typically, executive functions are delayed up to 30% in a child diagnosed with ADHD. More than 85% of Kaizen’s students have been diagnosed with ADHD, and more than 70% with an additional or other learning difference. Executive Function deficits are amplified in those with ADHD and, as a result, our coaches are specially trained in effective strategies and methodologies to best support your child.
