From the first days working with women from South and Central Los Angeles who wanted to start their own businesses, we've had a "people-first" emphasis. We focus on finding business strengths on a human level and in all other dimensions, from location to vision.
Amy began doing business planning while serving as the Vice President of Development at Beyond Shelter in Los Angeles. Coming from a not-for-profit background, she realized that people were not going to be able to establish the homes and lives they envisioned for themselves and their families through social services. They had a lot of great ideas and infinite capacity to create, build, and improve things. Amy decided she was a builder, too. And has been building things ever since.
