Spero Transitions – A Story of Hope

Spero was founded out of my personal story of transition and hope. Bringing our youngest daughter home through adoption, created significant transition in our lives – both personally and professionally. Though her arrival was full of joy, our lives changed in an instant. We faced challenging systems, mounds of paperwork, appointments, changing home dynamics – not to mention the management of everyday life. It felt overwhelming.

Our journey of adoption was joyous, but other transitions I have faced have not all brought joy – some have brought great struggle and distraction. Each of these transition experiences have given me an understanding of our need for the hope experienced through one another’s support.

At Spero, we understand the unexpected weight transitions can bring. Our professional team is ready to navigate with you, bringing Organizational and Operational Structure to your situation creating opportunities for you to thrive. You are not alone.

Meet The Team

Amy Kahl

Founder | Transition Specialist

Amy founded Spero with a passion for people to experience hope amidst the chaos life and work transitions can bring. She believes that we all have the opportunity to thrive – sometimes we just need some help to get to the other side. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing that moment a client finds freedom from the weight of the burdens they have been carrying.

With a background in corporate consulting, small business operations, and director roles with non-profits, Amy is equipped to bring solutions to a wide range of challenges brought on by transitions. Amy is honored to have the opportunity to do this work, and engage with our incredible clients every day.

In addition to work, Amy loves time with her family (3 kids, husband and naughty dog). You can either find them on the basketball court or on a hike in the woods. Daily life for Amy always includes coffee and laughter – every day.

Michelle Kolling

Client Specialist

At Spero, Michelle finds it gratifying to use her creative and resourceful problem-solving to ease the burden of others during their journey. Having spent most of her professional career in various roles in small business, she loves guiding a growing company to articulate their vision and values, and then help to implement organizational structure that turn their vision into reality.

Michelle is a trained end-of-life doula and currently volunteers with several local hospice organizations. While serving as a caregiver to her husband during the end of his life, she came to understand the transformational possibilities that exist when being deeply present in the end of life experience. Michelle feels called to walk alongside others as they face end of life through legacy work, courageous conversations, vigil planning, and grief and healing.

Michelle considers reading life-long continuing education and always has a book or two nearby. She loves connecting to creativity through artwork, knitting, gardening and playing in the kitchen. Recharging in nature and physical activity help to keep her healthy and grounded.
