I would just like to congratulate Amy Fournier for being my 4th featured model!!
How does process work??….. How do I determine who I feature??
I feel it’s how serious the model/talent is…. How did they treat the photo shoot and what have they done since the shoot.
I felt Amy Fournier has come a long way since our first shoot and I can see how serious she is about the industry.. She has the drive and desire it takes to take things to the next level and I hope this interview and spotlight can and will help her some how. Amy is a true sweetheart to work with and always gives 110%!!
Name: Amy Fournier
What do you do for work?
I am a dance and fitness instructor, performer, holistic nutritionist and model.
What do you do for fun?
Play sports, hang out in Miami, surf, power-shop, go out with friends, take a walk in the woods with my dog, take a dance class, go to the theatre, listen to music, hang out at the beach, go to NYC to party for a weekend, dance spontaneously, play with my puppy, drink red wine (but not too much!) and NAP…I try to make everything I do fun!
What are your goals?
To be the person I want to be; to have a life that was fully lived, inspired others and that I’m proud of.
As a model… What type of modeling jobs would you like to do?
Anything that I feel is of high integrity and value- both with the people and products associated with it. Something that somehow contributes something of beauty and worth to the world, something with substance and soul.
Plus anything edgy, different, creative or with a unique perspective intrigues me and is very cool.
What magazines would you like to see your images in?
Ocean Drive, Vogue, Health, Shape, In Style, Entertainment Weekly, Women’s Health, Natural Muscle, Sports Illustrated, People, Maxim, Fitness, Fitness RX, Natural Health, Elle, Boston Magazine
Who or what has been a huge influence in your life and what have you done about it?
My own personal health challenges and my search to overcoming them naturally has led to my career choice as well as the realization of the power of a healthy lifestyle. Also my father’s life and then his passing have been huge influences on me and are a big part of what and who I am today.
If you could sit down and have a cup of coffee with anyone ( dead or alive ) who would it be.?
Marilyn Monroe, Mother Teresa, my Dad (who passed away) and any one of my good friends or family!
Do you have any hobbies?
Yes! Cooking healthy meals and snacks, reading steamy fiction novels, writing poetry, surfing, making new music playlists, looking at fashion magazines and lounging at the beach any chance I get!
What was it like working with Stewart Smith?
It is obvious that he cares deeply not only about his work, but also about the people he works with and this comes through by the images he creates as it speaks for itself.
What got you interested in Zumba?
I’ve been a health professional for over 25 years and have taught fitness since the mid 1980s. I have always loved music and to dance so when I lived in Florida in the early 1990’s the gym I went to offered this weird new class with Latin music to choreographed dance steps called “Zumba” that I would go to. It was so funny because there where like 3 people in the class (including me) and the instructor only spoke maybe 5 words of English but I found it challenging and different and kinda fun so I would go back every week even though I could barely do it and was stumbling all over the place!
After that, it was only natural that I become a certified Zumba instructor myself- adding it to my training and credentials. Little did I know at the time what a huge phenomenon Zumba would become. It is now the largest branded fitness program in the world!
Do you have anything you want to promote?
Is there anything you want to tell the world?
Two things………. Never, ever, ever give up hope and Find out what it is that makes you come alive and then go do it, because the greatest gift you can give the world is your happiness.
If I wanted to take your class or contact you for modeling or promotional work…. What would be the best way to do so?
