She graduated with a Bachelor's degree fom Valparaiso University near Chicago, Illinois.

Amy grew up on a small dairy farm in Northeast Indiana - she loves cats but not dogs. Amy saw an AWP ad for a Saturday workshop several years ago, has attended a few workshops, and then heard about this awesome Summer Institute from a collegue - so here she is. Amy has taught and worked at a boarding school in Lake Forest, IL and has been teaching at West Noble for 13 years.

My friends and I used to write plays for each other at recess in first grade; I won a short story contest in third grade; I just need to write. Writing is communication - we need to be able to say what we mean. I enjoy writing stories and poems for my children, scripts and plays, letters, and press-releases for advertisements for my theatre. My favorite genres to write are: memoir, poetry, and feature articles. When I have time to read, I enjoy most play scripts, educational theory and DIgital Workshop Books :)
