Amy rose to fame when she started featuring on the sci-fi reality television series The Dead Files as a physical medium in 2011. She co-hosts The Dead Files with Steve DiSchiavi with whom she investigates hauntings across America. The show returned for an eleventh season on 11 July 2019.
Each episode of the show begins with Amy’s initial walk-through of the investigation site. Before her visit, her assistant and videographer who happens to be Matt(her ex-husband) removes anything that might distract or influence Amy during her “channeling” session, e.g. items such as family pictures, trinkets, or personal effects.
She then appears to communicate with ghosts, spirits and other entities, and often Matt asks Amy vital questions in her walk-through.
DiSchiavi then conducts an investigation into the history of paranormal activity and the location and interviews the client(s), the clients’ family members or employees (if business is involved) and local experts in genealogy, local history and law enforcement about his findings. Steve’s footage gathering facts is often edited with Amy’s walk-through of the site’s paranormal phenomena to highlight certain aspects of both’s discovery.
Allan then collaborates with a sketch artist to describe the entities she claims to have channeled during her walk-through, which is called “The Sketch.” Amy’s sketch is presented during the Reveal and often aligns with Steve’s photographic findings.
