About Amy

Amy Vodarek is the founder of Insight Edge Learning and Leadership, a women’s leadership development company that focuses on the health care, women-owned small business, and social venture sectors. She specializes in helping visionary women lead with conviction, take decisive action, and chart a bold course for the future. She offers coaching programs, team development, and educational sessions designed specifically to help women leaders increase their presence, power, and impact. Her clients learn to confidently speak up where they used to hold back, take a stand, own their ideas, and handle criticism with strength and grace. They can then reclaim their time, set boundaries, and improve creativity through clear commitments and by holding people accountable. Importantly, Amy guides women leaders to practice next level self-care, bringing a renewed energy and confidence to their leadership.

Amy’s clients include women leaders in small business and social enterprises, executive leaders and teams in federal and provincial government agencies, and local health integration networks, community and public health sectors and academia.  Corporate enterprise clients include leadership development and coaching in corporate enterprises such as KPMG,  NUVO Network Innovation Centre, McMaster University, and professional associations and national foundations.

She is the co-author of the Amazon bestseller Good Enough: Embrace who you are. The book focuses on how to unleash your brilliance, as well as exploring the internal barriers holding women professionals back from stepping into roles that allow them to express their full potential. She hosts the weekly podcast Insight Edge with Amy, where she shares content and interviews to support women leaders.

Amy holds a Masters of Science – Nursing from McMaster University, where she is an adjunct faculty member and she designs and teaches leadership to emerging healthcare professionals.
