Amber Setter, CPA, ACC

Senior Manager, Leadership Coaching Center of Excellence, PwC

Amber Setter may be a CPA, but she works with hearts, not numbers. Her practice focuses on leadership coaching and trainings designed to improve organizational performance. With more than 10 years of experience in public accounting, she excels in her work with professional services firms.

Setter coaches leaders at all levels, from staff to partner, and dreams of the day when all organizations will choose to hire coaches for everyone—not just a few executives at the top. She is also a CPA Exam expert and has successfully coached candidates who thought passing the exam was an impossible goal.

Setter earned a master's degree in leadership studies from the University of San Diego and is a Professional Certified Coach by the International Coach Federation.

She is inspired by opportunities that advance the development of the whole person, rather than just one's technical proficiencies. She demonstrates her commitment to this by serving on the CalCPA Accounting Education and Careers Committee and is the vice president of CalCPA Education Foundation Board of Trustees.
