Sana Jardin perfume is sold in 100 luxury retailers around the world including Net-A-Porter and Harrods and has been featured widely in the New York Times, Vogue and The Wall Street Journal.
Amy’s background is in the non-profit sector and after earning her Bachelors and Master’s degree in Social Work, she became a direct practice social worker before spending almost 20 years partnering with various foundations to address economic inequality including President Clinton’s Foundation, the Cherie Blair Foundation to support Women and the Robin Hood Foundation. Amy is involved in a number of non-profit organizations including being a Georgetown Ambassador for Women, Peace and Security, Board member of the Funtasia Impact and Advisory Board member of Nest.
