At the age of 6, Amy began working in the family business. When her parents learned of Amy’s plans for the business when she inherited it, they decided to sell. Forced out at the age of 12, she turned her mind within and took up meditation.


As a native of Michigan, Amy has handled holistic healthcare, earthbound spirits and people who wanted to explore one or more past lives. However, for the past 2 decades Amy has devoted most of her time helping those who want to

    • lose weight
    • quit smoking
    • reduce anxiety and depression
    • overcome pain
    • change bad habits.

As a result of her success, Amy is closely watched by members of the Indiana religious right, competitive psychologists and people with very bad handwriting. And that, she thinks, is a great reason to comb her hair every morning.

Amy works as Clinical Hypnotherapist, writer, and webinar leader who has several specialty and advanced certifications.   She  also recently became certified in Clinical Reflexology.  She has studied and been involved in alternative medicine approaches for over 20 years.  She opened Changing Lanes in 2002.
