Educators are our most precious and valuable resources, and changes have to be made or we will lose them.

Amy loves to serve her audiences by sharing practical and actionable strategies to safeguard their emotional well-being. She equips educators with tools and knowledge that allow them to find joy in their relationships and responsibilities at home and at work.

”Mrs. Copes speaks from her heart and values the importance of mental health and self-care. Prior to working with Mrs. Copes, I had never had the privilege of working alongside an individual who recognizes the importance of work and home life balance and for that I am humbled, honored, and ever so grateful.”
