Amy Meyer has had a passion for public speaking and the theatrical arts since she first attended a performance of You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown (staring the then little known Gary Burghoff!) at the age of 6. She spent the next two years performing the role of Snoopy on the dining room table (no dog houses were available.) She was active in both the musical theater and drama departments in high school and in community theater.
She graduated from Florida Southern College with a BS in Political Science and minor degrees in Theater and Business. Before attending Law School at Florida State University, Amy was accepted into in the FSU Masters of Theater program where she completed a BRITT acting apprenticeship and earned her Actor’s Equity card. She worked as an actor and director in both professional and semi-professional and academic settings.
Upon completion of law school, Amy became a trial attorney and litigated in the civil and criminal arenas. Her most interesting job as an attorney was working as an Assistant State Attorney in Miami with the Janet Reno administration. After 14 years of trial work, Amy set aside her briefcase to raise and homeschool her two children, Madeleine and Sam. Homeschooling has given her a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with her love of history and the theater.
She has coached children and adults in preparation for public speaking engagements and auditions. For the past two years, she has worked as assistant director and drama coach here at Metro Academic Studies. She is looking forward to helping students find their gifts as godly participants in the world of drama and exploring the truth of world and American history. She is in the process of creating a non-profit organization dedicated to truth and integrity in the arts. Her goal is to assist in raising up young artists and art supporters who approach their craft with a dedication to the promotion of a Christian worldview.
She and her wonderful husband Larry live in East Cobb and are active in teaching Sunday school and looking for opportunities to serve Christ in today’s culture.
