Janis Cooper, of EQnimity, and I have been working together to provide "out of the box" experiential opportunities for individuals and groups. We're working with business groups, nonprofits,  local governance groups, companies, even kid's camp groups.

Why Amy and Janis?

Amy Todisco, a twice certified life coach, nationally recognized green living and wellness expert, and has been a life long leader. It just seems to come naturally, even as early as high school. In her early 30's she created a powerful environmental movement in a small coastal community north of Boston, Massachusetts. There she created the first of it's kind Earth Day celebration, and the nonprofit, theMarblehead Cancer Prevention Project. Upon moving to Vermont in 2001, Amy was hired by Seventh Generation to lead a new nonprofit that was designed to hire toxicologists to test a variety of natural household products for their potential indoor air pollution contributions.

She is currently the Chair of her local Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors where she is playing a pivotal role in a total turnaround for the organization. She's also the founder and Board Chair of the Mad River Valley Wellness Alliance- a collaborative network of local health and wellness business owners who seek to make the Mad River Valley of Vermont a wellness destination. She's a graduate of the Rockwood Leadership Institute, and has received further training in nonprofit community organizing. Amy and Janis have been working together for the past few years bringing Amy's retreat goers and kid's farm campers for this unique coaching experience with horses.
