She grew up with a passion for snowboarding and travel, and despite fighting for her life and losing both of her legs below the knees to bacterial meningitis at the age of 19, her passion for life carried her not only to the upper echelons of athletics but to the dance floor of Hollywood and beyond.
Amy is a professional snowboarder and a three-time Paralympic medalist, making her the most decorated Paralympic snowboarder in US history.
Amy is a New York Times best-selling author and highly requested international motivational speaker who has toured with Oprah Winfrey to packed arenas across the country.
Amy was also the runner-up on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars with her partner Derek Hough. She went on to dance in front of millions of viewers during the Opening Ceremonies at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games.
In 2017 she took on the role of Cultural Envoy where she traveled to Brazil on behalf of the Ambassador and Consult General bridging ties between Brazil and the United States by inspiring women, youth, and communities to live their best life.
Amy is the co-founder of Adaptive Action Sports, a non-profit organization that helps disabled youth, young adults, and wounded veterans get involved with action sports. AAS was instrumental in getting adaptive snowboarding added to the 2014 Paralympic Games.
