Amy is passionate about opportunity — more specifically, creating opportunities for all Coloradans to live healthy, fulfilling lives. That passion makes the Foundation’s mission close to her heart. Since joining us in 2008, Amy served in roles within the communications and the community investment and impact teams. Prior to stepping into the role of chief impact officer in 2021, Amy served as vice president of community investment and impact.
Amy moved to Colorado from Missouri, where she was director of communications and public policy for Missouri Family Health Council, a nonprofit health care organization. She began her career in newspaper reporting and then worked in public relations and strategic communications for a telecommunications company before entering the nonprofit world.
Amy arrives at the Foundation each day excited to collaborate with a talented and committed team. Her staff is focused on creating opportunities for health across Colorado — through funding initiatives and programs, partnerships, grants that support innovative ideas, and community engagement.
One of the highlights of Amy’s many experiences at the Foundation was the statewide listening tour, when she traveled throughout the state and heard about the opportunities and barriers to creating healthier communities. Her favorite road trips, though, are with her husband and two boys. She enjoys when they’re all together, headed someplace new with endless opportunities for adventure.
