Amy was a recipient of the Possible Dream scholarship at Delta College, which opened the door to higher education for her.

She then went on to earn a Master of Education from Saginaw Valley State University. Amy was a first-generation college-going student, and she counts the day her diploma came in the mail as one of the proudest moments of her life. She credits all of her academic accomplishments to her grandma and mother, who encouraged and inspired her every step of the way.
Amy is a proud mother and auntie. She also enjoys reading, traveling, yoga, and has recently rekindled her spark for performing in local musical theater productions.
