Amy JanFrancisco, MFA, ACC, Student Support

    

  

Amy brings things to life. She designs, animates, motivates, and inspires. This natural propensity led her to acquire a Master of Fine Arts from Penn State University, with a concentration in Costume Design and Technology. Amy has always been dedicated to the creative process and has devoted herself to honing it in her life. A consummate storyteller, Amy soon fell in love with teaching. She served as an instructor and mentor to many a wayward undergrad trying to find their way!  

Amy's work as a freelance designer has taken her on a fascinating journey, which has included being wardrobe manager for the Radio City Rockettes at the Fox theater in Detroit, and costume shop manager for Radio City at the Palace Theater in South Carolina. While in Detroit, Amy was recruited as wardrobe supervisor at MGM Grand Detroit and had the privilege of opening two casinos from the ground up.  She now holds an executive management position with the resort, and employs her coaching talents daily.

Today, Amy's passion is coaching. She enjoys mobilizing all of her vast and diverse experiences together to help others find greater meaning and purpose. She loves helping her clients find their values and strengths in pursuit of coming to a fuller understanding of their purpose - while keeping them laughing, and imparting her "glass half full" outlook on life.

Originally from Philadelphia, PA, Amy now lives in West Bloomfield, MI with her super-fun-awesome husband, Gary who - even though he is fantastic - refuses to accept the aesthetic qualities of the English bulldog. (When it comes to dogs, Amy believes the uglier, the better!) Amy loves the ocean, boating, paddle boarding, enjoying the great outdoors, hiking, traveling, learning, and speaking.
