Amy started acting at age ten, when she played “Ariel” on an episode of ER
in 2002. The young actress would next appear in Ally McBeal
as Hayley. She followed that role with a spot on The West Wing
. Amy did not make any more appearances in 2002, but returned next year in 2003, with four appearances on the short-lived Oliver Beene

However, it wasn’t until 2004, after the popular Disney series Lizzie McGuire

She also stars as “Haley Long” in the Disney animated series American Dragon: Jake Long.
