Amy fled from the traditional path of illustration in order to explore her creativity in a variety of unique settings ranging from a social innovation design lab, an entertainment start-up, and a public service department within government. Today, she uses narrative thinking, an analytical mindset and creativity to create viable and impactful solutions that put people first.
