Amy was a longtime associate of BetterInvesting and ICLUBcentral. At one time she was the managing editor of BetterInvesting Magazine and wrote the popular “Beginner’s Corner” column for many years. She also edited the newsletter for the youth membership and continued to contribute articles to BetterInvesting.
For the last several years, she was the pseudonymous “StockCentral Reporter” who created the semimonthly StockCentral Gazette email newsletter, and she also wrote a regular column on investment clubs that was published on the StockCentral.com website.
Amy also wrote a book on starting and running an investment club that’s about to be published in ebook form by ICLUBcentral: The myICLUB Guide to Starting an Investment Club.
Amy was an exceptional writer who contributed articles on a freelance basis to many publications. She was committed to demystifying personal finance and investing for beginners, and I was perennially in awe of her writing abilities and professionalism.
Amy’s battle with cancer is documented on her blog, It’s in the Genes.
She’d been working on her memoirs, telling the story of the four generations of women in her family who have carried the BRCA1 gene. She was a tireless warrior and advocate for breast cancer research, treatment and care, appearing in many newspaper and television stories.
