 Amy began working in the field of mental health her freshman year of undergraduate education and has worked steadily in the field since that time.  Armed with a strong background in community mental health and some experience working in the foster care field, Amy entered into the college counseling field in 2005 where she remains today as a Director of Counseling at St. Ambrose University. When she is not working in the mental health field, Amy and her husband spend most of their time riding bikes, taking hikes or traveling with their three boys.  Amy loves being a counselor because, “I get to bear witness every day to people’s courage, personal growth, and resiliency in the face of their greatest fears and challenges.”
