Amy was born and grew up in Wiltshire but moved to Wales in 2008 to do her degree in Acting at The University of Wales, Trinity St Davids in Carmarthen. After graduating in 2011 the first thing Amy did was come to Cardiff to volunteer at Hijinx’s Unity Festival and she has never left! She was lucky enough to be asked to work as support staff for Hijinx in early 2012 and has continued in this role ever since, now leading on student welfare.

Alongside this, Amy has spent the last 5 years working as an actor performing in productions at The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven and travelling around Wales in several tours for the likes of Taking Flight Theatre and Spectacle Theatre.

Inclusivity has been at the heart of close to all of Amy’s work since graduating and is something she feels extremely passionate about. Hijinx has been the one constant throughout her working life to date and she is extremely excited to continue on this journey with them.
