What is AMYP?

Check out our video below to learn more about AMYP and how our first year as an employee resource group went.

A behind the scenes look at the AMYP leadership team!

"Team B is different...Teammates jump in and out of discussions. People interject and complete one another's thoughts. When a team member abruptly changes the topic, the rest of the group follows him off the agenda. At the end of the meeting, the meeting doesn't actually end: Everyone sits around to gossip and talk about their lives."

The description of “Team B” comes from an article in the New York Times. We are speaking from personal experience when we say our ERG is successful because it’s leadership team is a ‘Team B”.

Our team isn’t satisfied with status quo, we constantly challenge each other and don’t stop collaborating on an idea until it fully represents what we stand for.

Robbie Snider, AINS, AIS

AMYP Founder and Chair

I love being outdoors and being active. Whether it is playing disc golf, hiking, running, or biking I really enjoy just being in the sun. One of my passions is empowering people to believe in themselves and realizing their potential. I think it is important to spread positivity, because negative influences can be contagious and can be detrimental to any group or organization. My main goal for the YP group is making YPs an integrated part of the success at AMIG and having them be the starting point for innovation and culture change.

Krista Gorrasi, M.Ed.

Strategic YP Liaison

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, baking, and spending time with family and friends. I am very passionate about my career in general and need to feel as though I’m making a difference in some way. I’ve recently discovered a genuine interest in a field of study known as positive psychology and, specifically, how this affects people’s happiness in regard to their work. (Google “Shawn Achor” to learn more about this topic.) Because I believe everyone wants to feel as though the work they do is meaningful, I’d like to learn how YPs at American Modern view themselves and help them realize their potential to make a positive impact.

My passions are creation, implementation of BIG ideas, and helping people reach whatever goal they have in mind. My two biggest loves are my children (Kaylee and Jordyn) and reading.
