Amy is extremely aggressive but you would never guess this from her demeanor. She has an iron will and will work around a problem the way w ... ater finds its way around a stone. She doesn't argue, she just passionately works her way around the problem until the problem is bypassed. Her tenacity is her greatest strength and weakness, I sometimes think her approach is incorrect but she will persist until she proves me wrong to my surprise. Her ability to garner resources and goodwill from the community is rather amazing. I would have spent a $100k to accomplish much of the videography, webdesign and set up which she got done pro bono. I am extremely busy but she has gotten me to spend about 200 hours on her project without any compensation which speaks to her amazing gift of persuasion. Her personal battle with cancer and what she translated that energy into upon her recovery is an amazing testament to will power and belief. I think Amy will make an excellent entrepreneur.
