Amy’s bright and beautiful soul defied any single category: an educator, a farmer, a dedicated yoga teacher, a builder, a music lover, a caretaker.


She was a wanderer in constant search of adventure, of community, of the right place to call home.


She was a seeker of spirituality, of health, of community, of environmental sustainability, of meaning, of fairness.

To her niece and nephew and the other lucky children she cared for and loved, she sometimes seemed more like a magical fairy than a person. 

Amy knew that a conventional life wasn't for her and was determined to live the life she dreamed of instead. This took her all over the globe. As often as possible, she preferred sleeping under the stars.

Amy graduated from Wayland High School in 2002, received a B.A. from the University of Vermont, and was certified by various yoga teacher training centers.


She was fiercely committed to John, her family, her many friends, and being a force for good in the world -- still volunteering in the final months of her life, her work not complete.

Amy struggled with ulcerative colitis from the age of 15. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in July 2020, a few days before her 36th birthday.


She died on June 30, 2021, surrounded by her family and beloved friends.
