Born and raised in Torrance, CA, Amy originally wanted to be a basketball player. When the diminutive Amy realized that wasn’t going to work out, she turned to dance. She appeared in many music videos and commercials before landing the role of “Tinkerbella” in THE GUILD, the widely popular web-series created by comedian Felicia Day. Other TV roles followed in GREY’S ANATOMY, CALIFORNICATION, THE MIDDLE, and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE.
In 2015 she appeared in Shonda Rhimes’ HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER as one-half of a pair of siblings who may be responsible for the murder of their parents. She has also had recurring roles on the Amazon series THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE and the NBC series THE GOOD PLACE with Ted Danson and Kristen Bell.
Next up for Amy is the Netflix series ATYPICAL starring alongside Jennifer Jason Leigh, directed and produced by Seth Gordon.
