Amelia has succesfully graduated from Oxford University where she achieved a 2:1 in her English Language and Literature BA. Her dissertation looked at plays that were written during and about the AIDS crisis.

She is the director of Somewhere Outside the City, a theatre company committed to centralising queer narratives and using theatre as a space to prioritise and project marginalised voices, in particular those of female and LGBTQ+ characters. She believes that theatre is inherently political and wants to use theatre to effect political and social change. Her directing credits include Touch Therapy (Paradise in the Vault, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016), Spring Awakening (O'Reilly 2015), The Vagina Monologues (TSAF 2015). She was the assistant director on Binding (Oxford Playhouse Studio 2016) and A Clockwork Orange (OSO 2016).

Her acting credits include Helena in A Midsummer Nights Dream (Brasenose College Gardens 2015), Crave (Oxford Playhouse Studio 2014), Play & That Time (Oxford Playhouse Studio 2015), His Dark Materials: Part 2 (O'Reilly 2015), the Charity Play in a Day (Pilch Studio 2015) and Marlene in Top Girls (Exeter College Chapel 2016). She has acted professionally as Joyce in The Thunderblot at The Orange Tree under the direction of Sam Walters. She also sang with Merton Choir, was the Jesus College Arts rep and Stage Editor for The Oxford Student newspaper (2015).
