Amy was born and raised in Houston, TX. She has loved animals her whole life, especially dogs. Amy graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. After college, she was a 4th grade teacher for ten years. During that time, Amy and her husband got a dog of their own and sent her to board and train with Suburban K9. She got a personal firsthand experience of how obedience training helps families communicate with their dogs. After leaving teaching, Amy longed for a job in which she could still teach but in a different capacity. She is thrilled to be able to use her skills from teaching and transfer them to training with Suburban K9!
In her free time, Amy loves spending time with her husband, her dog Winnie, and her cat Einstein. She also loves baking and selling her sweet treats at local farmers’ markets, listening to audiobooks, square foot gardening, camping, hiking, and traveling.
