Amy Brady

Founder

“Above all else, I believe in building strong connections. Whether in my work or in my personal life, the greatest fulfillment I experience is through open, vulnerable and honest relationships.  I spend my days falling in love with people; I can think of no better way to live my life.”

About Amy

A Denver native, Amy has been working within her community for over 20 years.  She is a Professional Certified Coach, and experienced trainer and facilitator, a licensed teacher, and a certified youth-program assessor.  Amy is also certified as an Energy Leadership Master Practitioner and COR.E Leadership Dynamics Specialist, enabling her to administer the ELI attitudinal assessment and provide subsequent coaching and training toward individual empowerment and organizational culture change.

Following 11 years in the classroom, Amy worked with Colorado State University Extension, developing youth programs in Denver’s inner-city neighborhoods. Through this latter experience, she became passionate about knowing and impacting her greater community.  During her time with CSU, Amy was the recipient of two national awards: The NAE4HA Diversity Award and the NAE4HA Excellence in Urban Programming Award. She also received the CSU Extension Distinguished Service Award for superior work with diverse clientele.

She has taught middle and high school science and math, worked with parents of teens, delved into the world of cultural and socioeconomic diversity, and trained hundreds of members of the Denver community on topics ranging from youth engagement, to understanding poverty, to effective leadership, to urban volunteerism.

In 2013 Amy founded StandUP, realizing her long time dream of becoming an entrepreneur.

Amy approaches every project with passion. Dedicated to impacting her community, she puts her heart into her work.  At the core of this conviction is her love for people, her devotion to living authentically, and a commitment to creating a thriving future.

Amy is happily married and has three lively children. What she loves more than anything is enjoying the sunshine on the front porch with her neighbors and laughing often and heartily with family and friends.

Robert Franklin

Co-Facilitator, Breakin’ it Down: Straight Talk About Difference

“I am most inspired by those who do not believe in limitations, the impossible, or the word “can’t”.  I am inspired by those who refuse to give into the temptation to settle for what is given, normal or regular.”

Why StandUP

I stand with StandUP because I believe the way to create change is to create relationships that matter, through conversation, education and opportunity.  StandUP offers me the opportunity to work with organizations and individuals ready to create change within themselves, and by doing so, change the world.

Robert is also the creator of several diversity-related trainings, having worked with hundreds of youth and adults on diversity awareness and cultural sensitivity.  He is passionate about diving into crucial conversations that educate our community about difference.  Robert is the recipient of several awards for his work with diverse clientele including the CSU Extension award for excellence in diversity promotion.
