Amy M. Gardner '17 MPPA
Amy is a Certified Professional Coach and Consultant at Apochromatik. She helps attorneys and other professionals cut through distortions and distractions to decide where they want their careers and lives to go, and then develop the tools to get there. Whether that means helping clients improve and advance in their current role, or move to another, her goal is to help clients create a career and life they love rather than simply tolerate. She also offers group workshops and seminars for law firms and other organizations.
Amy holds a BA from Luther College, a JD from the University of Chicago Law School, and an MPPA from Northwestern. Her work as a coach builds on her unique track record of working with law students as the Dean of Students at the University of Chicago Law School and a successful career practicing law, first as a Skadden litigation associate and later as an associate and then partner at Ungaretti & Harris LLP (now Nixon Peabody). She is a graduate of the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching and a member of the International Coach Federation. She is based in Chicago and works with clients from across the country.
