Amy is a productive lifestyle vlogger who loves family travel, sophisticated fashion, and elevated home decor.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Amy attended The Ohio State University (Go Buckeyes!) before deciding to go out on her own and become an entrepreneur. She now has a home in Palm Beach, Florida and the Connecticut Shoreline.
Amy has always prided herself on being an independent woman. (She blames Ne-Yo for inspiring her as a young lady through the song "Independent Woman".) From age 18, she lived on her own terms and worked hard to keep it that way. Like many millennials, Amy tried to figure out the right path to becoming successful in her career, so she thought she should become an attorney. While still in undergrad, she figured she should work at a law firm to "feel it out". She quickly discovered the legal route was not right for her, but in her 6 year tenure at this prestigious law firm, she assisted the partner leading the public policy sector. This led to amazing experience in campaign fundraising and policy lobbying. Even more importantly, it led to getting an edge on have real work experience while the rest of her student colleagues were struggling in the '08 crisis to find any jobs out of school. Amy decided to quit university to keep her job before her luck ran out. But then everything changed. It was in her spare time that she discovered content creation on YouTube. After 2 years of obsessing over this side hustle passion project, she took the leap, become a full-time digital entrepreneur and left Corporate America forever.
In her spare time, Amy's catching up on the latest Real Housewives drama or baking something new in the kitchen. Ereader always in tow, she's a voracious reader of non-fiction and self-development books, especially if it helps her achieve the balance of being a new mother while running a business. When traveling anywhere, Amy always makes a stop at a local wine farm—she's partial to something sparkling. Her favorite kind of fitness is a fast-paced walk with Bianca in the stroller. The only thing missing on those walks is her first dog, Lucy, her ride-or-die companion since the beginning of the journey when Amy was independent and 18 years old. Lucy was a special needs beagle, blind from a glaucoma diagnosis at age 7, but held on strong until her passing in 2020 at age 16. Being a dog-mom paved the way for Amy to become the mother she was always destined to be. Some of the best work Amy would share is her term serving as a board member in her local community back home in Columbus. Her time as President of the Downtown Residents' Association of Columbus and on the board of the Central Ohio Transit Authority have helped offer her some of the most fulfilling perspective on how our work is always for the greater good. Anytime she can find a way to volunteer her time and share her skills for the right cause, she's in.
On behalf of my family—my husband Vincenzo, my daughter Bianca, and me—thank you for being here to consider how we might work together in a future partnership. Many of the collaborations I've been able to be a part of in my career are what make it possible to support my family, build my incredible team, and give my child an amazing life. I've been doing this for nearly 15 years now, but I don't take a single opportunity for granted. Please let me know how I can support you in the future.
