In 2017 Amy completed the Tea and Herb Association of Canada’s Tea Sommelier program and is now a Certified TAC TEA SOMMELIER® Professional.

She also has been interviewed on CBC radio (2006), various podcasts (2005 - ongoing) including American Food Network’s podcast Steeping Around (2013) and The World Tea Podcast (2016).
In 2014 Amy won Platinum Award, and from 2015 to 2017, won Top Ten Winner in the Favourite Psychic Category. In 2017 she also became one of the Top Ten Winners for Favourite Life Coach in Hamilton Spectator Reader's Choice Awards.
At this time, Amy is not able to do readings via Skype or FaceTime but hopes to have that set up to accommodate requests in the future.
Amy does not provide telephone readings. Amy is available to teach or provide tea and Lenormand tea card readings at private parties and special events by appointment. But please, book early as her schedule at times fills up months in advance.
