Testimonials

Vivienne O'Connor, Dobbs Ferry, New York

Amy has been my editor and writing coach for the past two years. I am a lawyer
working in the field of international peacebuilding, and part of my job is to write
about complex legal concepts for a general audience. Amy’s gentle, yet direct
approach pushes me beyond my comfort zone and helps me write in a style that
is engaging and relatable. She has brought incredible insight and her substantive
expertise in areas such as peacebuilding and adaptive leadership to bear on the
work I am doing. Amy is also an incredibly gifted editor. Her edits are nothing
short of perfection – I have yet to hit “reject” on an edit of hers!

Amy evaluated a leadership development program that I co-facilitated on behalf
of a philanthropic client in New York City. Her insights were critical to informing
our next steps. Amy really takes the time to gain a thorough understanding of the
projects she is evaluating and the experiences of the diverse stakeholders
involved. She then beautifully encapsulates the key themes that emerge from her
conversations. What’s special about Amy is her ability to bring together strong
analytical abilities with a demeanor that builds trust. It’s rare to find a consultant
who is as curious, respectful, and articulate as Amy.

Amy Clipp is an amazing facilitator, moderator, and writer. Amy’s facilitation of
group dynamics and discussions motivates those of opposing opinions to
continue to search for common ground. Amy’s calm and inviting presence takes
the information presented and weaves it into an agreed upon plan of action to get
things done. It’s been my experience that Amy Clipp is an asset individually and
as a member of a team.

Amy Clipp amazes me. Important ideas are not always easy to express, but time after time I have seen her make it look easy. She makes complex ideas understandable, whether the application is a white paper or a high profile state-wide plan. She is a big part of the reason Louisiana’s plans for saving its vanishing coast and adapting to hurricanes and climate change are national models for clarity and accessibility.

Amy is the consummate professional, whose technical writing expertise works hand-in-hand with visual designs to holistically distill complex information into easy-to-understand concepts. She is the perfect answer to how written and visual content can and should work together to communicate in a very powerful way.

Amy is much more than an editor. She is a highly effective coach able to ensure that teams of busy people meet their writing objectives. Working with Amy we not only tackled a challenging writing assignment, we produced a report that truly connected with our audience. Her involvement led to a 200% increase in the number of readers compared to the average number of readers for similar reports at our Institute.

Amy has been a tremendous source of insight, instruction, and inspiration to Louisiana Sea Grant as we developed our LA DIA program on science communication and community engagement.  The innovations developed in this program reflect the professional quality that Amy brings to translating science to the public – with impact.  It has been a joy to experience the systematic way that Amy approaches the challenges of bringing science to a broad audience.
