Born in southern China, Amy was secretly raised by her grandmother in a small village far away from the city where her parents lived. Five years later, Amy returned to her family fold to greet her baby brother, but the impact of her earliest years close to nature left a deep impression on her. Amy grew up liberated in spirit, inheriting the fearlessness of her grandmother from those early years. She studied intensely, earning top grades, and aspired to be a scientist. She earned her BA in marketing and computer science, and eventually a MBA. Although Amy acted in school plays and was scouted at her teen age, she didn't think of pursuing acting till she was strongly encouraged by a mentor while living in Chicago.

She then continued her study at Ivana Chubbuck Studio, Beverly Hills Playhouse, and SAG LA Conservatory.
