about the blogger

Amy Vaerewyck

My name is Amy Vaerewyck. I’m originally from LaPorte, Indiana, a small town which is notable for its perpetually flooded but lovely lakes and its mysterious high school mascot, the Slicer. I earned a bachelor’s degree, studying journalism, German, and English, from Butler University in Indianapolis before moving to Fort Collins, Colorado, to participate in the AmeriCorps program. While there, I learned how to ski and how to make a mean cappuccino. Later, I moved to Boulder, where I earned a master’s degree in Creative Writing and learned how to live in utopia. Then, I left the mountains and moved to Washington, D.C. where I worked for the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots youth program as Communications Manager. After some months of travel and language study in lovely, lovely Italy, I heeded the mountains’ call to return. Currently, I work as a web writer for the University of Colorado Denver in the sunny, Mile-high City.

I’ve been car-free since 2006 when my Nissan Sentra breathed its last breath. Since then, I’ve walked, run, biked, bussed, subway-ed, and carpool-ed my way through life. As a result, I’ve got stronger legs, a weaker carbon footprint, and a lot more respect for high-quality umbrellas.
