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. Amy has been with us since 2008, serving as program officer and in communications roles before her current position. She loves being part of an organization with a meaningful mission that reflects her belief in the greatest good for the greatest number.
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.
