Highlights of the event:
Amy Oestreicher is a 28 year old actress, musician, teacher, composer, dancer, writer, artist, yogi, foodie, and general lover of life. She grew up in Fairfield and actually moved to Westport the day she was discharged from the ICU after her stomach exploded 2 weeks before her senior prom. Now she’s bought a house with her husband in Norwalk and spends her free time with her hubby, going to Hampshire College, blogging about her experiences, leading workshops, creating art and performing. Surviving and thriving through a coma, 27 surgeries and other trauma has inspired Amy to share her story with the world through her passionate desire to create and help others. Piecing her life together after her initial dreams of performing musical theatre took on a beautiful detour into broader horizons. Amy has written, directed and starred in a one woman musical about her life, Gutless & Grateful, has flourished as a mixed media and acrylic artist, with her art in multiple galleries and mounting dozens of solo art shows, and continues to share her story through her art, music, theatre and writings. Her favorite food is anything involving cheese.
