She was also the recipient of the Faculty of Business Administration Dean's Medal and the Leon Goldman Scholarship, awarded to the most distinguished graduate of the Faculty of Business Administration receiving a first degree.
Amy is passionate about sharing her love of the performing arts with others, and believes strongly in the impact that arts education can have on the lives of children. She directed the Minis & Expressions for several casts, and is currently heading into her third season in the role of studio director alongside one of her favourite people ever, Miss Lisa.

Outside the studio, Amy works in eCommerce at Hillberg & Berk, and in her spare time, enjoys eating, watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S., and running. She feels extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to share her passion for the performing arts with the Saskatchewan arts community and is thrilled to be back at SaskExpress for another season.
