World Class Athlete

A true trailblazer, Amy’s journey has never been conventional.

Growing up in Las Vegas amongst a family of skiers, Amy fell in love with snowboarding at the age of 15 and knew it was something she would do for the rest of her life, so much so that when she lost her legs below knees at the age of 19 she was back up on a snowboard that very season after creating and building a pair of her own snowboard feet to snowboard on ( those feet are currently on display at in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC.)

Amy and her organization were pinnacle in getting snowboarding accepted into the 2014 Paralympic Games for the very first time where she went on to become the face of the sport winning 3 Paralympic medals making her at the time one of the top ranked Paralympic snowboarders in the world.

Retired in 2021 from competitive snowboarding Amy continues to share her love and legacy in the sport by helping other people with disabilities excel at snowboarding through her organization Adaptive Action Sports.
