Our Story

We all make an impact. Whether positive or negative, it’s a choice, and we have a passion for choice.

We empower individuals, teams and communities to rise to their best – and then inspire them to do the same for others. We believe that when people are given the tools to powerfully connect, they more effectively impact their peers, organizations and communities. Like a ripple on water, the effect is exponential.

From grassroots to boardrooms, StandUP gets to the heart of what we all crave: to be seen and heard. Using a unique relationship-building approach, StandUP works across sectors and age groups to provide impactful community-centered coaching and training.  StandUP techniques and tools are practical, highly effective and accessible to everyone.

Our Vision

We envision a world where all people and communities thrive.


Our Core Values

People first. Always. 

We are in this together.  

Open minds grow.
Growth is everything.

Creativity guides our thinking.
There is no box.

We do what we say we will do.
We are who we say we are. 


“Amy’s work as a facilitator has had a positive impact on our entire organization. Her versatility and widespread knowledge has allowed all members of our staff to participate in numerous opportunities for self and organizational improvement. Amy has a way of asking the right questions to get to the root of what a person is thinking or trying to say. This has led to many “light bulb” or “ah ha” moments that set participants up for success. I feel Amy’s greatest impact is her ability to motivate everyone to take ownership of their actions moving forward. She makes everyone realize that we can be given all of the necessary tools, but ultimately it is up to us to use those tools for future achievement.”
