Amelia is a storyteller living in Los Angeles with her husband, two young daughters, and their pit mix dog, Blanche. She grew up in Brooklyn and the suburbs of Chicago in a family of activist storytellers, so she's got a city edge with Midwestern grounded-ness mixed with a fair sense of right and wrong. She studied improv at UCB and ComedySportz, acting at Lesly Kahn and Playhouse West, graduated from Northwestern University with a bachelor’s in Theater and a Pre-Med concentration (science is cool, all right?), and got her MFA in TV and Screenwriting from Stephen's College. She studied voiceover with Nancy Wolfson, Billy Holmes and David Lawrence for commercial training. For animation, she’s studied with Bob Bergen and Susan Palyo. For dialects, she’s studied with Eliza Jane Schneider.
Amelia writes about many things, but often she focuses on historical injustices or triumphs that mirror those of today's.
