A graduate of the Rockwood Leadership Training program in 2002, Amy has always been interested in leadership and has held many leadership positions herself. She was the Board Chair of her local Chamber of Commerce for two years, where she played an integral role in transforming the Chamber into a much needed direct marketing organization for the community. Amy also founded and co-founded several nonprofits, and was an Executive Director for four of them, including the Marblehead Cancer Prevention Project, the Mad River Valley Wellness Alliance, the Household Toxins Institute (started by the Seventh Generation Founder), and now the Vermont Farm Immersion Program.
Over the past 28 years, she’s been a nationally recognized green living expert. She even got a call from one of Oprah’s producers some years ago. Oprah was going to come to her home in Vermont for an interview but went with a nonprofit at the last minute sadly. As a highly sought after Green Living & Wellness expert, she has frequently been interviewed and appeared in the media, including Hearst Argyle’s Vermont WCAX News, Vermont Public Television (VPT), Rachel Ray Every Day Magazine, Seven Days (Vermont’s Independent Voice Newspaper), Christian Science Monitor, Vermont Life and Farm & Ranch Magazine, and on various podcasts.
She has a wonderful daughter, and lives with her partner, Dave, on their organic farm in Waitsfield, Vermont with two dogs. She loves to learn new things, challenge and grow–she even adopted a 4 month old horse 16 years ago, never having owned, much less trained a horse. That led to working with horses in leadership coaching sessions. An avid organic gardener, she loves to read, do arts & crafts, spend a lot of time in nature, cook and dance.
