Ami was born to Tushar Trivedi and Jaya Trivedi in a Gujarati family in Mumbai. Her father was a theatre person so, she literally grew up in the theatre. Both Trivedi and her brother have been child artists. She did her schooling from Manav Mandir High School, Mumbai, and excelled in her academics. She graduated in science from Jai Hind College, Mumbai. She was keen to study medicine and wanted to be a doctor but that didn't happen.
Trivedi started acting since childhood. As a child artist, she acted in Hindi serials like Hamrahi and Zee Horror Show in small cameo roles. In 1994, she acted in Prakash Jha's telefilm Didi which focused on education of female children in rural areas. After taking a gap for studies in class 10th and 12th, Trivedi returned to acting as a teenager and did Gujarati theatre for some years. She received appreciation for her acting skills from the Gujarati audiences.
Her major theatre background helped her in getting many acting offers from television channels. She got her first break for a small role in a daily soap Babul Ki Duwayen Leti Jaa which aired on Zee TV. Thereafter, she did cameos & supporting roles in few shows like Dil Chaahta Hai and Kumkum- Ek Pyra Sa Bandhan. She also acted in the popular comedy sitcom Khichdi which was the first show produced by Hats Off Productions. Despite the popularity of the show, Trivedi would not appear in its second season Instant Khichdi because she would be committed to other projects.
Later in 2005, Trivedi auditioned for Kituu Sab Janti Hai on the insistence of a coordinator. She didn't even have her photographs taken for self-promotion but she impressed them and managed to get a call back in two days. She won the lead role of Kittu in the show. She was chosen among 40–45 girls based on her talent. It was the breakthrough point of her career. She played the role of a young extrovert 20-something girl Kituu who takes the plunge to face the professional world. The show ran for two years and finally ended in March 2007.

Trivedi also appeared as a guest in famous dance class show Nachle Ve with Saroj Khan hosted by Saroj Khan, on 21 December 2011.
Since 2012, Trivedi kept a distance from television as she got busy with her marriage and pregnancy until she made a comeback in July 2013 with Zee TV's horror show Fear Files: Darr Ki Sacchi Tasvirein. She did an episodic role in the show. She later entered in Sony TV's popular court room drama Adaalat where she played the role of a public prosecutor. She acted as mother in "Tedhi medhi family" a wonderful tv series on Big magic channel. Presently she is working with sab tv as Rupal(chakudi) in their new tv show "saat pheron ki hera pheri ".
In 2001, Trivedi gave her voice to Daniel Radcliffe's role as "Harry Potter" in the Hindi-dubbed version of the first film of the Harry Potter Series. Since the second film of the series, her brother, Karan Trivedi took over as the second Hindi dubbing voice for Harry Potter, until it was passed to Rajesh Kava after the fifth film. Since then, she has lent voices in various animated and live-action films like The Incredibles and Barbie Mariposa. She has dubbed for some Gujarati films also.
