Amy graduated from Baylor University in 1987 and then earned a Master of Science in Health Administration from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She and her husband, Kurt, learned of SCH through the adoption of their youngest son, who received care at the hospital while he was living in the orphanage in Soddo. Some of her volunteer priorities have been teaching teens about sexual abstinence, leading a Moms in Prayer group and hosting foreign exchange students. Amy and Kurt have been married for 27 years and are the parents of Martha (24), William (21) and Joseph (13). They are members of Cherrydale Baptist Church in Arlington, VA.
