Amy was born with an incurable disorder called lymphedema that left her immensely disfigured. Her right leg was 200% larger than her left leg. She lived feeling alone for a long time. Through lifelong adversity with her disability, she developed an activist mindset as she feverishly fought to better her quality of life through medicine, nutrition, fitness, and faith. Against all odds, her journey led her to overcome the worst known severity of lymphedema, and she now manages it with minimal maintenance. She left the corporate world to pursue her calling to be a voice for those with disabilities and live a philanthropic life.Today, Amy is a global advocate for lymphedema awareness and education. She is the founder of Rivera Hybrid Solutions, a company that specializes in distributing innovative compression bandages for lymphedema patients. She is also the founder of Ninjas Fighting Lymphedema Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and resources to individuals with lymphedema and the author of DROP THE SKIRT-HOW MY DISABILITY BECAME MY SUPERPOWER.
