"Amy was a joy to work with and brought high energy, flow, polish and professionalism to my client’s (Institute of Food Technologists-IFT) annual event in-person 2022 general sessions, live-streamed to a global virtual audience. It was the first time we were in-person in three years, and IFT wanted to come back with high impact. Attendees, leadership, and speakers said Amy was fantastic, with high energy and connection that tied everything together seamlessly for the science-minded audience. She offered personal stories to connect with the minds and hearts of audiences, while setting the stage for timely discussions on sustainability, food safety, nutrition security, and innovation.
