Past lives of Amy, include but are not limited to: a nationally competitive lyrical dancer, child mime, pageant winner (Crowned ‘Best Interview’), professional bar mitzvah dancer, MFA Acting student, and dog day care receptionist.

From there she began the 1st season of Hot Mess in 2009 while starting the MFA Acting program at the National Theater Conservatory (Class of 2012). As an actor she has appeared in this weird viral video, the webseries Gays Anatomy &, Duder, and her vlog Coat Tales- filmed in the actual closet where she checked coats in the winter of 2012. Amy is an advanced improviser at the UCB and still auditions for legit theater on days when she has clean laundry and her headshot and resume already stapled together.
