Amy’s keynote presentations focus on inspiring guests to live a life which goes beyond their limits, something she’s learned to do after a tragic event.
While in her twenties, Amy went home with what she thought was the flu, and just a few hours later she was put on life support and given a 2% chance at survival. She was later diagnosed with bacterial meningitis and had both of her legs amputated.
Amy had to learn to accept and embrace the new her, put the pieces back together in her life and create new meaning. Now, she is a Paralympic snowboarder, world-class speaker, and NY Times best-selling author.
It’s a powerful story she now proudly shares with others to inspire them to challenge themselves to keep marching forward.
Listen Amy speak about losing her legs, finding silver linings and moving forward in the emotional Goalcast presentation captured in the video below.
