Meet Amy

Amy’s teaching is grounded in extensive training in New York with world-renowned voice teacher, Kristin Linklater. Inspired by her work in New York, Amy established a voice coaching business and sister-company, children’s drama studio Viva Voice, upon her return to Sydney as a platform to offer coaching beyond the realm of theatre: to teachers, university professors, lawyers, health practitioners, anyone and everyone using their voice professionally.

Amy has since facilitated corporate voice and communication training for staff from numerous organisations, including: Commonwealth Bank, Channel Ten, NSW Department of Health and University of Sydney
