Amy was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. Growing up, she enjoyed performing in local theatre and school productions. She went on to attend the University of Southern California where she double majored in Theatre (Acting Emphasis) and Psychology and graduated magna cum laude. In her time there, she performed in various plays, musicals, and workshop readings. She was also able to spend a semester at the British American Drama Academy in London, where she studied Shakespeare, High Comedy, and Stage Combat, among other things. While studying theatre at USC, she was lucky enough to be mentored by renowned industry artists such as Kate Burton, John Rubinstein, Joseph Hacker, and John DeMita.
Since graduating from USC in 2019, she has been involved in a variety of projects. Amy starred in the immersive theatre thriller “The Séance” and was also a part of the new musical workshop “Accidental Joy,” which ran at the Montalban Theatre in Hollywood. From 2019 to 2020, Amy was a regular performer at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, where she taught guests about the ocean in a fun and entertaining way.
During quarantine, she has taken over as Associate Producer of a series of virtual benefit concerts with Broadway Knights. All proceeds from these performances go directly to Tara’s Chance, an organization that uses equine (horse) therapy with special needs children. She has performed in several of these concerts as well. Other quarantine endeavors have included playing Anna in MSD Productions' virtual Spring Awakening and Camila in BroadwayMania's virtual In The Heights.
Amy has also performed in various short films, appearing in Smile With Markian’s comedy short “What It’s Like to Be Bilingual,” which has surpassed 54 million views, and starring as the lead in Glasspirits’s music video “Mexican Baby.”
When not performing, Amy has taken on volunteer work throughout the Los Angeles area. During her college years, she was involved with Jumpstart USC, a program that worked with pre-schoolers in underprivileged areas on issues of literacy. She also spends her time as a behavior therapist for autistic children. A proud Latina, Amy is passionate about giving back to the community she grew up in and fostering a love of learning in children.
Ultimately, Amy loves sharing impactful stories to create art that can help others to feel less alone. She is a firm believer that everyone’s voice has an impact - and wants to use hers to inspire others to use theirs.
