Amey became involved with camp by running the Boston Marathon as a charity runner in 2019. Through that experience she learned how to share her personal loss with suicide and knew the mission was something she would always support. Amey fulfills the role of camp director during camp week. She finds joy in making sure each camper has the best experience at camp. 

Amey is co-founder and business owner of ame-creative, freelance designer and brand consultant with a MS in Marketing with a minor in Social Media.
