Amy is a poet, activist and vocalist. Her other full-time job (the one where she makes money) is as an advocate with the developmentally disabled. She is co-founder of a performance poetry group in Buffalo, NY, and The Erie County Disability Coalition. Amy, herself, has a mental health disability and a chronic pain condition.
When she is not writing or rallying, she is eating organic food, sleeping on her pillowtop mattress (ahh!), getting rid of waste in a socially appropriate fashion, trying to connect with Buddy Jesus and looking for a man who doesn't watch woman-defiling porn.
