Amy is passionate about the fact that all people are created equal and have equal worth. Motivated by scripture passages such as Isaiah 58 and Matthew 25:31-46, Amy has had a desire to spend her life serving the “least of these”. While still in school, this took her to nursing homes where she would spend time with and learn from the residents. After graduating, she moved to the Sahara desert where she worked five years in a developing nation helping to bring dignity to female prisoners, empowering underprivileged women to start small businesses, and launching an after school program for impoverished children. Since returning to the United States, Amy has been shocked at how little she knew about the immigration system and about how our own immigration laws affect people who are made in God’s image. Even having been friends with immigrants for many years and having married an immigrant, Amy has had to do a lot of research to get to a place of confidence in her compassion. Women of Welcome has been a big help in that journey and Amy is incredibly honored to get to be a part. Amy has a degree in Christian Leadership from Ecclesia college and lives in Northwest Arkansas with her husband and two daughters.
