to several classroom teaching experiences early in her career. She furthered her education at

Lesley University, attaining a Master of Science degree in Education (Curriculum and Instruction

rekindled her creative side and set in motion the career paths she identifies with the most


Amy currently works as a professional writer and dancer. She authors the column Living with

Luke (of the Yankee Xpress), tutors High School students on college essays, and has drafted

several novels, one of which (The Rhino Dance) partially imitates her current role as Dance
