Ep #66 Overcoming with Amy Oestreicher
Amy Oestreicher is the epitome of overcoming challenges and rebuilding a life after loss.
In just a few short months, at only 17 years old, she lost trust, lost her grandparents, lost her health and the future she expected to have.
You will love her optimism and her wisdom. Like me she believes firmly that we are more than our circumstances.
Here’s more about Amy:
Amy Oestreicher is an Audie award-nominated playwright, performer, and multidisciplinary creator. A singer, librettist, and visual artist, she dedicates her work to celebrating untold stories, and the detours in life that can spark connection and transform communities.

She has given three TEDx Talks on transforming trauma through creativity, and has contributed to NBC’s Today, CBS, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen Magazine, The Washington Post, Good Housekeeping, and MSNBC, among others.
