is to grow.”
Amy was born in California, where she grew up hiking and playing in the ocean. In college, she was looking to transfer when she heard about Maharishi International University’s Ayurvedic studies program. “When I googled Ayurveda and the university, I had the wow moment—the moment of all moments I had been looking for.” After three years at MIU, she graduated with a BA in Ayurveda Wellness and Integrative Health, along with a certificate in the Healthy, Happy Mother and Baby Program. She also became a Certified Nurse Assistant through Indian Hills Community College. Today, Amy is in the process of exploring ways to make Ayurveda financially accessible to everyone. “My goal is simple: to help as many people as I can with the blessing that is Ayurveda.”

I believe the home is the extension of you. Treat it with respect and love, and your home will be the happiest place on earth.
I love taking care of my houseplants and planting gardens in my yard. It makes me feel closer to nature. Everyone has a green thumb. You can do it!
I’m a big advocate for reading books. Whatever you want to learn is out there!
