Amy Scott: Friendly Mentor

Amy Scott appreciates the value of women helping women and she exudes a unique blend of friendship and mentoring in the workplace every single day. As a managing partner at New York Life—one of the youngest people to be promoted to this top title—she supervises three partners and more than 70 agents while juggling her own family of three young children. Her colleagues say she’s a role model who inspires women to recognize that it is indeed possible to lead a balanced life and to be successful as well as compassionate.

Above and beyond her core responsibilities, Scott actively participates as a speaker at events to promote the growth and development of other women. She knows firsthand that a career in insurance and financial services can be a great fit for women because it combines the ability to do good for others and to do well for themselves. Add to that the opportunity to carve out ample time for family, and you have what Scott believes is a winning world of work.

Her leadership and service extend outside of the office, too. Scott was the team captain for the 2006 Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness walk and she is on the board of the Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She also lends her time to Coats for Kids and Heart of Georgia Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Scott says watching agents who she recruited and trained excel is incredibly satisfying, and she calls their success one of the most gratifying aspects of her career. “I believe and strive to communicate that your career should enrich your life and those around you.”
