Amy's Message

"You are not alone. Let my story be your guide. When I am speaking, the goal for my audience is, and always will be, for them to walk away from my speaking engagements knowing more about themselves and their own story. I use what's called the mirror method. I tell my audience I hope to be a mirror for them to see inside their own lives so they can walk out knowing more about themselves. I encourage people to use my story as a guide, or roadmap of sorts, to help them navigate their own."

What Teachers Are Saying...

“Thank you so much for having this service available to our students. Not only was the information vital for each and every teenager to have, I believe ALL people should hear this presentation. The presentation was informative and organized, but even more so, the presenter was engaging, remained in authority over the students, and taught the subject matter in a relevant way. I truly felt the students were captivated with the stories. The way it was presented helped them to better understand the importance of mental health for each individual. As well as be given the tools to be empathetic to those around them who are struggling as well as action steps in case the need arises. I was very encouraged and excited to know that this is in schools because it is such important information for them to know.”
