Amy attended Greeley West High School where in 1998 she graduated as an honor society member. She then attended the University of Northern Colorado as a pre-med student but soon realized that her passion was not in Western Medicine, but that instead found the healing and wellness provided by Eastern Medicine to be greatly inspirational. Following her passion for natural healing methods, she then chose to study Bionetic medicine at the International Academy of Bionetic Practitioners. This school gave her exposure to Homeopathy, Bach Flowers, Homotoxicology and Electrical Acupuncture through the use of a biofeedback device called a Body Scan 2010. She completed Bionetic Practitioner I (BNPI). She was in the process of completing BNPII when the founder, Spencer Woolley suddenly passed away causing the school to close. Then, determined to continue expanding on her knowledge and pursuit of learning natural medicine, Amy attended the Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver, Colorado, where she graduated in 2011 with a Master's of Science in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
