Amy is also a published Author, her new book, "LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION", Media Coaching for Any Professional in Today's Digital World, was released in the fall of 2021. Amy wrote this book, as a way to help her clients become more confident in front of the camera. After interviewing hundreds of professionals on her various TV shows, she realized that most people have great anxiety whenever the camera turns on and would "freeze up" during filming. She began "coaching" her guests before the camera went on and taught them her secrets to overcoming their public speaking fears. This was so successful that she wrote a book sharing these same tips and techniques. Today, Amy uses these same skills to coach corporate clients, business professionals and entrepreneurs, and is considered one of the Top Media Coaches in her field. Her Media Coaching Course for Executives is so successful that she created the on-line version of her private training into a Web based training course called "Media Training for Professionals".
Amy now resides in San Diego, California, with her husband and children, and continues to perform and speak at events in support of the non-profit and veteran community.
