All Saints' Member Since 2013
Recent parish activities include:
All Saints’ is a part of my family’s life. We volunteer in the nursery, have taught 4th and 5th graders, and I now serve with Zack as the chair for the Children and Youth Task Force. My girls are acolytes, and members of the choir. My husband Darren and I served as cochairs for Kanuga 2019, and are on deck to host Kanuga in 2021. We attend adult education classes. We work with Refugee Ministries, delivering backpacks, and providing transportation to Threads. We serve Thanksgiving dinner with Covenant Community. I am a proud alumni of the Talents Roundtable group, served on a search committee, work as a nurse at Camp Mikell, made annual fund calls, and we hosted fellow saints for the neighborhood dinners series.
Strengths and skills I can offer the vestry:
I will bring a knowledge of the children and youth programs to the vestry. I have a passion to serve the underserved. I have experience in healthcare, which has made me good at listening, dealing with delicate situations, and making concrete progress toward a collective goal. I have worked with the underrepresented in community health for 20 years, and am excited to explore how the church can address the racial inequities in our city. I have served on PTOs, and on the board of International Women’s House.
Amy would also like you to know:
I want the parish to know I have family that has truly benefitted from All Saints’. Darren and I have been married for twenty one years. I have two daughters, Nora and Darcy. I have worked for the last eight years as a nurse practitioner for a nonprofit in Mechanicsville, The Center for Black Women’s Wellness. I also work at a private Ob/Gyn practice in Marietta, teach at GSU’s School of Nursing, and serve as a leader in Girl Scouts.
