Nourishing A Vision
The surreal act of driving something you never expected.
Amy is an entrepreneur, working mother, and writer who specializes in building communities and telling digital stories. In 2015 she founded VanHaren Creative, a social and digital marketing agency made of exceptional women telling brand stories for mission-forward companies. That same year, Amy faced deep isolation while trying to navigate working and breastfeeding. She saw a better way to unite and empower all the nursing and pumping women of the world and went on to create pumpspotting, the go-to breastfeeding app and global community. pumpspotting was named a top five app for motherhood by Apple, featured in Vogue in September 2018, and recognized as one of the top 26 Mass Challenge startups.
Amy never imaged that her passion to nourish her own family would lead her to nourishing others and take her 17,000 miles cross country on a 40-foot RV called the Breast Express. Now, as passionate as ever, she’s out to help one million more women reach their breastfeeding goals.
She’s a Mainer who has lived and worked on the Seacoast for 14 years but draws inspiration from her many past residences including Northern California, Michigan, Hawaii, and Minnesota.
