BWBC 2022 Theme

This year, we’re helping women Embrace All That Is YouThis theme reminds us to recognize and embrace our skills, and to continue to build upon them to further shape our professional development, improve our health, and pursue new opportunities.

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.
