Amy's experience as an educator began at a young age in a church nursery and expanded to both public, private, and parochial school classrooms. For ten years, she served as an inclusion educator to students from a variety of diverse backgrounds. She holds a MAT in Early Childhood Education with endorsements in reading and special education from Reinhardt University in Waleska, Georgia. She also holds degrees in psychology and general education for K-12 students. In addition to studying the practice of learning from an academic standpoint, Amy has also spent time studying the practice of learning from the spiritual perspectives of movement and meditation. She enjoys sharing yoga, dance, and guided meditation with students of all ages.

Amy's favorite literary pieces include The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle and various works by Mary Oliver. While she feels that all the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism are equally important, she acknowledges that her work in Religious Education and Adult Enrichment are driven most profoundly by the Fourth Principle which speaks to the freedom to seek personal truth and meaning. Amy is passionate about supporting families and individuals in their search for personal truth along life's ever-changing journey.
