Amy Chambers has over 21 years of experience in the financial services industry and has spent 15 of those in leadership. By the time she was 28, she was managing 260 people for a large commercial bank, and has held numerous District Manager and Regional Director roles- before ultimately becoming a Chief Operating Officer for a credit union. During her years as COO, her organization grew at a rate of nearly 20% annually. Throughout her career, she’s led over 500 people to success. She’s worked with and for every kind of leader imaginable, and in her two decades of observing, studying, coaching, and mentoring others- she’s developed a framework of principles that work, every time, to help transform culture, engage people, and deliver results- EVERY TIME.
Amy holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame, where she double-majored in Political Science and Philosophy, and an MBA from USC where she concentrated on Marketing and General Management. She’s been a part of numerous clubs, organizations, and boards both during her time in school, and after including Director of Communications for multiple Alumni Clubs.
After losing her most beloved uncle to ALS in 2015 and also going through a traumatic breakup that same year, Amy made a decision to transform her mindset and put hundreds of hours into studying the principles of mindset, satisfaction, happiness, and fulfillment. She worked to overcome fear, take control of her destiny, and pursue goals she had only dreamt of- but never quite made reality.
Amy trained herself from being unable to run a mile without having to walk- into a marathon runner. In the past 7 years, she’s ran 181 half marathons, 11 full marathons, and hundreds of other races, totaling almost 10,000 miles. She also became an avid skier- something she was once deathly afraid to do. Amy is a long-time cyclist, rollerblader, tennis player, and photographer. Some of her favorite accomplishments include a gallery opening she hosted for her photography and biking a few 100-mile centuries. In 2020, she bought her dream home, and currently resides in Long Beach with her boyfriend of 5.5 years, David.
