Amy Marturana Winder is a freelance writer focused lifestyle. She has spent all of 2021 gut-renovating her fixer-upper home, handling all of the design work while her husband heads up the actual construction—though she helps as much as she can and has learned more about power tools and house construction than she ever thought she'd know in her lifetime. She's also thoroughly enjoying furnishing her home, from appliances to end tables to an ever-growing collection of houseplants.


  • Amy has written for The Spruce since February 2021.
  • She went to Syracuse University for Magazine Journalism.
  • She has contributed to SELF, Women's Health, Martha Stewart Living, LIVESTRONG, and more.


Amy is a seasoned writer and editor who specializes in lifestyle content. She's especially skilled at marrying her personal interests with her researching and writing skills to create top-notch content. Outside of work, she spends most of her time renovating her fixer-upper home and trying to keep her succulents alive.


Amy received her Bachelor of Science in Magazine Journalism from Syracuse University in 2012.
