Amy Z 2020-3

Amy Zhang

Kitchen & Wilderness Fellow

Amy is originally from Changsha, China and joined the HMI staff in 2020. Growing up in a “small” city of 7 million people, Amy was fortunate to have a public park nearby with mountains and rivers. Amy relocated to Colorado Springs for high school where she was introduced to and fell in love with the Rocky Mountains. After earning an art degree from Whitman College, she returned to the Pikes Peak region where worked at an independent school and the Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. She brings life-long passion for food, including gourmet backcountry cooking. When she is not in the kitchen, she enjoys spending time with her plants, making recipe cards for her friends, and exploring the trails in Leadville.
