Amy Pieri
Board Member

Having recently returned from a short-lived affair with Denver, Amy happily reembraces Manitou Springs. An amateur playwright, adequate choral singer, and hopeful baker, Amy’s legitimate documentation includes an MS in Professional Writing and Technical Communication (University of Houston-Downtown), and a BA in Anthropology (University of Houston). She believes forging strong, warm, circular relationships through art creates real human connection. Amy humbly welcomes her responsibility as a new board member and fervently supports the MAC community.
