Amy grew up in Richmond Virginia like any normal girl. Her life was full of school, dances, dating, sports and friends. She had the same joys, disappointments, challenges and insecurities as anyone her age. Then it all changed. At fourteen, her dentist’s secretary suggested she try modeling because she was tall and had the all American look. The local modeling agency sent her pictures to New York and before she realized what was going on, she was signed with one of the top agencies in the world and working with amazing photographers like Bruce Weber andSteven Meisel. Her second job was the ultimate dream job for a girl from Richmond, working with Kate Moss for the Calvin Kleincampaign. From that point on, she worked for everyone from Abercrombie to Louis Vuitton, from Versace to Valentino, Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, basically everyone. She traveled the world, balancing school with a career that included covers of Bazaar, Vogue, andEuropean Marie Claire. She loved it, until…
She noticed people were making comments about her size, some mild, some blatantly rude. She would hear things like “you are a pretty girl, but slightly “too healthy” for my taste”. As a lifelong athlete, she was fine with this initially. Then she realized it wasn’t even remotely a compliment. Things had to change.Amy signed with Ford+ in January 2009 where she started working immediately. Her client list includes; Elena Mirò, Ralph Lauren, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Evans and magazines Elleand Glamour to name a few.
Amy has recently relocated back to New York, having just earned her bachelor’s degree from UCLA.
