Not only is Amy a world class athlete, she is an inspiration, a great speaker and a true professional. I’ve had the opportunity to work with Amy over the past years. She has a strong work ethic on and off the playing field.

I cannot thank you enough for such a heartwarming, inspirational message. I went back and forth from smiling broadly to tearing up at your challenges and successes. I loved hearing about your “next chapter” after Tokyo. Your foundation and work with other visually impaired athletes will be so rewarding.

Thanks so much for joining us a the MedTech event. Your discussion was one of the highlights of the two days, and it was a great two days, so that is saying something.

Greg CaressiSenior VP, Frost and Sullivan Medical Technologies Mind Exchange

Amy - we talked about you the ENTIRE week at NSM. Just about every presentation that was made your name came up as both a frame of reference for how long patients suffer prior to diagnosis and also how important it is that our patients are informed. You are a true source of inspiration for our whole team.
