Amy, a certified Cannabis Health Coach, helps people improve their lives through mindful cannabis use. She believes that cannabis can help us become our best selves which can, in turn, make the world around us a better place. A proud Gen X-er, Amy has been a cannabis consumer since her college years in the mid-nineties. As a teenager, she developed an interest in theater as a tool for social change, so she went on to pursue this interest in college, obtaining first a BA and then an MFA in Theater Arts. She pursued an acting career for many years while supporting herself with a series of day jobs, ranging from food service to dog walking to retail to being a personal assistant.
In 2016, when she moved to Washington State (where she was finally able to use cannabis legally), Amy began educating herself about the health benefits of this amazing plant medicine that she had been using "recreationally" for so many years. She soon realized that she had actually been self medicating her anxiety and depression all along. The more she learned, the more she wanted to know. Her interest in learning about all things related to cannabis led her to get certified as a Cannabis Health Coach by the Cannabis Coaching Institute where she met Jennifer Rotermund. Quickly after teaming up to be each other’s practice coaching partners, they became close friends, and enjoyed working together so much that they are now business partners!
