Amy has always had a big heart. When she was four years old, she sat at her kitchen table on a Sunday afternoon in Marietta, GA and announced, “I want to open a people store where anyone can come get anything they need and it will be free”. This is where Amy started her life but before she could bring some of those passions to life she started her professional career managing multiple businesses. The corporate life was unfulfilling to Amy so she shifted gears to follow a calling into mission work. She spent a year traveling on the World Race visiting 11 countries in 11 months. The work varied from ministering to women working in the sex industry in Thailand to building relationships with gypsies in Romania. After returning home, Amy once again began managing businesses and was climbing the corporate ladder but after a few years Amy decided to go back to school and complete her Masters in Social Justice. This is where her eyes were truly opened to how to live a life seeking racial reconciliation and recognized that she was made to love and help empower those that need an advocate - whether they be children in the foster care system or refugees.
Her and her husband’s eyes were opened to how many children in foster care desperately needed a safe place and safe people after attending a training to help a friend who was fostering. They always imagined they would adopt one day but after that training they knew they would open their home to children in foster care in the future. After having two beautiful bio kids (Mac and Eveleen) she and her husband are now going through the process themselves to become foster parents.
When she’s not wrangling her bio kids, Amy is excited to invest her time and energy into supporting the foster care community through Atlanta Angels.
