Amy's Story

Amy has been working in Television Production for over 30 years.  

 

She began in Production completely by accident.  She was a Cast Member at Disney and the Film & Tape Department offered overtime to work with crews that would be shooting segments for “The 15th Anniversary of Walt Disney World” in 1986.  She volunteered and the rest is history.  She was hooked!  After working on and off for the department, Amy was offered a full-time position and worked with Film & Tape though the opening of the Disney-MGM Studios in 1989.

 

At that point, she packed her bags and moved across country to freelance in Los Angeles.  After a slow start, she got her break and was hired to help in the script department for the First Annual Grammy Living Legends. This is also where she met John Best for the first time and learned a tremendous amount from his experience. From there, she moved into the award show circuit working on The Grammys, Soul Train Music Awards and The Emmys. 

 

She moved back to Orlando in 1991 and continued to freelance between Orlando and LA working on shows such as “The Grand Opening of Euro Disney”, “Best of Country ’92” and “Countdown to the Neon Armadillo” to name a few.

 

Between 1995 and 2010, she moved out of the industry and worked in retail running stores for Williams-Sonoma and The Gap.  In 2001, Amy was hired as part of the new Apple Retail project and worked as a Store Leader for over 9 years before leaving the company to go back to Production.

 

In 2010, Amy was hired to work for Lightship Entertainment on the WDW Christmas Parade.  It was there she crossed paths with her old friend John Best.  Since then, Amy has been collaborating with JM Best Entertainment on a variety of shows and parades including “The National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade”, “The National Memorial Day Parade”, “Miss America Show Us Your Shoes Parade”, Magnificent Mile Lights Festival and “The 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade”.  She also continued her work as a Production Manager at Walt Disney World running such shows as “The Chew”, “Be Our Chef” and “ESPN’s College Game Day”.

 

In her off time, Amy enjoys traveling with her friends and spending time with her family.  Her other great love is her dogs.  She loves rescuing Senior dogs and giving them their best life!
