Suzy Amis Cameron

A noted environmental advocate, mother of five and former actor, Suzy Amis Cameron is committed to the principles of sustainability in all aspects of our lives, with a focus on reducing our ecological footprint through plant-based eating. In 2006, Suzy founded MUSE School CA, with her sister Rebecca Amis, to prepare young people to live consciously with themselves, one another and the planet. In 2015, MUSE became the first school in the country that is 100% solar powered, zero waste, and with a 100% organic, plant-based lunch program, leading to the designation of the “Greenest Restaurant in the World.”

She is also the author of OMD: The Simple, Plant-Based Program to Save Your Health, Save Your Waistline, and Save the Planet(Simon & Schuster/Atria, Fall 2018) and the founder of the OMD Movement, a multi-pronged effort to transform eating habits and the food system. She is also a founder of Plant Power Task Force, focused on showing the impact of animal agriculture on climate change and the environment, founded in 2012 with her husband James Cameron and Craig McCaw.

She is also a founder of Cameron Family Farms and Food Forest Organics, a plant-based café and market in New Zealand, and Red Carpet Green Dress, showcasing socially and environmentally responsible fashions at the Academy Awards. Suzy has produced documentaries and serves on several nonprofit boards. As an actor she was featured in more than 25 films, including The Usual Suspects and Titanic. Her website can be found here.

Rebecca Amis

Rebecca Amis, the Chief Innovation Officer of MUSE Global, LLC, incites discovery, inspires change, and facilitates cross-pollination of bold ideas. As Co-founder of MUSE School CA in 2006, she articulated the core values of this educational platform. As President and Advisory Board Chair of MUSE for more than a decade, she has continually overseen the growth and development of the organization that is now comprised of more than 200 students and 50 faculty/staff. She brings important skills and insights into student-centered curriculum, psychology, parent-child relations, socio-emotional development, and process communication. As a master trainer in the Process Communication Model (PCM), she instills this approach at MUSE with the faculty, students and families to bring forth a more conscious level for listening and sharing. Many leaders in education have noted that MUSE students exhibit extraordinary self-efficacy during their culmination process. Rebecca is currently originating the MUSE Global Model to make it accessible to communities both domestically and internationally.
 
A former college instructor in the behavioral sciences and liberal studies, she has worked in a variety of federally and privately-funded child and family programs including being the founder a Reggio-inspired school in the Midwest.
