She taught English for a few years upon receiving alternative certification through The University of Texas at El Paso. Her sincere passion is helping students succeed academically and professionally through the coaching process at UT Tyler. Outside of work, Amy volunteers in the college ministry of her church, travels and spends as much time as possible visiting her children and grandchildren.
