Born and raised in the Lehigh Valley, Amy Cozze was an honors graduate of Southern Lehigh High School. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in Psychology and minoring in Business Administration. She then returned to the Lehigh Valley, where she met her husband Andrew Cozze. They moved to the Slate Belt region to work alongside the Cozze family at Deerfoot Auto Parts, a successful family-owned and 40-year auto recycling and service business. For six years, she did everything from transporting engines to launching the international internet sales department.
Over time, Amy knew she wanted to embark on her own professional endeavor. She made the move to start her own business from the ground up. She embraced the many challenges and went from not knowing how to bake a cookie to creating award-winning, custom wedding cakes in less than two years, earning a place in the Hall of Fame of Weddings in less than four years. She has consistently succeeded in not only learning new skills, but at mastering them. Her bakery, Cozze Cakes, located in the heart of Nazareth, has received numerous accolades both locally and nationally, and has been featured in publications such as The Knot and The Huffington Post.
As her business has grown, so has her desire to give back to the community. She has been a member of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber for the past five years, and a board member of the Nazareth Business Council for the last two years. Most recently, she was appointed as liaison for the Chamber’s Public Policy Committee. She has always been a strong supporter of union labor, having two brothers and a nephew who are Local 19 Sheet Metal workers. In addition to being a mother to two wonderful boys, she is also a breast cancer survivor, and a vocal and sensible advocate for her community.
