B.A. Comparative Human Development, University of Chicago
“Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough.”
— Richard Feynman
Amy grew up right here in San Diego, graduating high school from the Bishop’s School in La Jolla. Afterwards, Amy attended the University of Chicago where she studied Comparative Human Development. While in Chicago, Amy worked as a personal stylist for Trunk Club and also tutored elementary school students. Upon her glorious return to San Diego, Amy decided to further develop her love for teaching and working with students and joined the Hammer Prep team. Though qualified in many subjects, Amy especially loves helping students with their history classes as she believes history is a living discipline and students need to be taught to view the events of the past through a critical lens. When she isn’t at work, Amy enjoys doing yoga (she’s the Zen one in the office), hiking (Torrey Pines is a personal favorite for her), or baking (if you’re extra nice, she just might share!).
