As a certified somatic sex educator and coach, Amy provides a compassionate, body-based approach to sexual health and wellness. She is deeply passionate about healing the world through pleasure, about truth in relating, about choice and voice, about empowerment and about joyful living. Amy believes that all of these things make for better community and a healthier planet.
Amy has also been an active community member, serving on the City of Stevenson’s City Council since 2010, and on numerous boards including the United Way, the Skamania County Economic Development Council, and the local Chamber of Commerce.

Amy’s daughter, Marina, spent her gap year in Israel prior to attending Banard College at Columbia University. This powerful experience shapes her strong support and passionate commitment to Tivnu: Building Justice.
Tivnu: Building Justice is optimistic that our 2020 - 21 Gap Year program will continue as planned, beginning on September 1. We are still accepting applicants, as space permits. Our staff is working remotely but with great excitement as we prepare for internships, learning, living, and enjoying the Pacific Northwest together. We will be implementing whatever modifications are needed to keep ourselves and the people we work with safe and healthy. Now, more than ever, we need to get to work, building a better world.
