The incredible journey of a 355-pound college dropout who survived a bomb and then became a CEO and Ironman triathlete.

When a bomb imploded her building on April 19, 1995, Amy fell three stories and was buried alive for over six hours. In the aftermath of her trauma and loss, Amy enacted the power of hope to transform from victim to champion in her work, education, health, spirit, and love.

Amy’s open, vulnerable, and seemingly impossible journey reveals the raw power of authentic hope. No matter how heavy our burdens may weigh – from our careers, health, addictions, insecurities, trauma, or loss – Amy reminds us that hope is a verb we can enact today to transform our lives into the future of our dreams.
