Initial challenges with nursing her babies turned Amie into an advocate for other families. She just celebrated her 5th-anniversary volunteering as a Breastfeeding Counselor with Indy Breastfeeding Moms, an active Indianapolis Chapter. She offers home visits and dedicates many hours to online support but thrives on the community found with in-person Chapter meetings. On the national level, she served on the social media and ethics workgroups.
Amie lives in Indianapolis with her husband and three children. Her background is in music (violin performance and history) and community organizing. These days, she can be found homeschooling, gardening, and performing with a community orchestra.
