Amy is a graduate of Carlow University. The hats she’s worn include addictions counselor; DUI intervention specialist; St. Vincent College prevention projects specialist; smoking cessation instructor; and teacher’s aide in a local school for exceptional children. After being witness to far too many tragedies, she decided to get licensed in life and health insurance, knowing that, “though I couldn’t help families avoid tragedy, I could help them navigate it” (and not add insult to injury by losing the house along with the primary breadwinner).
Since then, she has gotten her property and casualty license, an appointment with Aetna to sell Medicare Advantage products, and studied for her federal registration.
She has been married for over 20 years and has two sons, who are currently investigating colleges, while they maneuver high school life in the age of Covid (something she could never have envisioned when she was their age and wants to give a shout-out to kids everywhere, who have a hard enough time with adolescence without a worldwide pandemic thrown into the mix!).
She enjoys scrapbooking, walking, jigsaw puzzles, and being a cheerleader for her sons’ activities. She also likes (too much) experimenting with cooking for her family—which results in the three men in her life asking, either, “Can we have this again?” (as in, did you write down what you did?) or, “Do we have to have this again?”
Our family is completed by two black cats, brothers from the same litter. Amy wonders what they will do when their boys go off to college.
