Amy is a passionate connector with a natural instinct towards big vision and action. With 25+ years professional experience, she has worked in Chicago, Minneapolis, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Amsterdam and New York as a workshop creator and facilitator, public and private school teacher, a teacher-trainer, program-innovator, coach and consultant, small-business owner, and theatrical director/teacher.
Amy is committed to bringing people together through play, connection, self-expression and creativity. Her passion for human connection, growth and community led her to establish and grow The Connection Movement, a community that comes together and dives into self-discovery, transformation and deep, earnest connection.
The Connection Movement offers events, workshops, coaching programs, social experiments and retreats, including Connection Camp – a beloved four day, three night adult summer camp.
Amy is proud to have built and run a thriving community in NYC for a decade (passing the reigns in 2021). And has initiated and fostered similar communities in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa as well as Miami, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina.
