With: Amy Peele

Listen to "Making a Habit of the Habit | Amy Peele" on Spreaker.

Amy S. Peele RN, is the award-winning, best-selling author of Cut and Match, medical mysteries with a mission and a side of humor.

Before becoming a writer Amy enjoyed a fascinating 35-year career in the organ transplant field which provides an authentic backdrop to her books. As Director of Clinical Operations at University of California San Francisco (UCSF), Amy oversaw a team that successfully completed over 600 transplants annually. She learned early on in her medical career that humor was an important survival skill and studied improvisation at the world premier school, Second City, in Chicago.

Amy is an accomplished speaker who regularly presents to prestigious US medical centers such as, NYU, University of Chicago, University of Michigan and UCLA. She tells her audiences, ‘I kill people I didn’t like at work and use their organs for transplant - why waste the kill?’

As a certified Chopra Yoga Instructor Amy has been known to infuse her presentations with Chair Yoga which people need now more than ever while working remotely.

Match, Amy’s latest book, is a page-turning thriller that takes the reader into the vivid and dramatic world of kidney transplantation. Amy expertly weaves politics, living donor kidney transplants & the opioid crisis into a fast-paced, nonstop adventure.

Her book, Cut, received many awards, including the 2017 Independent Press Award, The Chanticleer International Book Award, a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, and a Finalist designation from the 2017 International Book Awards. Amy currently resides in San Francisco, close to the Golden Gate Bridge.
