A lifelong geography nerd, Amy majored in history and journalism at the University of Florida. After a summer internship, she fell in love with teaching kids, left journalism, and pursued a Masters in secondary education. She has taught middle school social studies for the past 13 years in Orange County.
Amy also is interested in the beautiful intersections between art and math. Since 2008 Amy and her husband, Nathan, have attended the Bridges Math Art Conference, hosted in different university towns around the world, including the Netherlands, Portugal, Canada, South Korea, and the United States. This combines three of her favorite things: traveling, learning and adventure.
Her main life goal is to learn everything there is to know about everything ever. So far, she has a long way to go.
