Prior to her work at Family Promise, Amy managed volunteer relationships at an interfaith non-profit in Washington, D.C., work in local religious congregations, and in higher education. An ordained deacon in the United Methodist Church, Amy is passionate about connecting the resources of the community with the needs of the community. Working with the development team of the national Family Promise office, Amy interfaces primarily with the volunteers, host and support congregations of Union County to train, support, and recruit volunteers to undergird Family Promise’s mission to propel low-income and homeless families to sustainable independence.
When she isn’t working with our incredible volunteers, Amy enjoys the outdoors, hiking in the Adirondacks, yoga, and voraciously consuming too many podcasts.
Amy holds a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Nazareth College of Rochester, an Master of Arts and Master of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible from Drew University.
