Amy grew up in southern California and was fortunate to have parents who loved to camp in the desert, ski in the local mountains, frequent the seashore in the summer, and travel to the national parks of the west, including Yosemite, Glacier, and the Grand Canyon. She spent two summers at a canoe camp in Ontario, Canada, where her grandfather was director.
She has continued this tradition and has expanded her adventures by hiking, rafting, and cycling around the United States and in Europe, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Middle East. She is looking forward to more trips in the future, including Iceland and Portugal.
Although she enjoys cities with museums, culture, and food, her favorite adventures are found in the natural world. She has kayaked among bat rays and dolphins, encountered gray whales, hiked among bighorn sheep, and snorkeled with tropical fish. She is a volunteer naturalist at Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.
