Amy was born and raised in Johnson County. During the Obama Administration, she started questioning Democratic policy and now considers herself an “eyes wide open” Republican. Her research led her to realize the Democratic platform did not align with her beliefs and core values. She has since been involved with several Republican campaigns, donating, hosting fundraisers, walking precincts, and making phone calls.
Amy has been an area Senior Mortgage Banker for 21 years. She has been with her current employer for 16 years and is licensed in all 50 states. Her experience will make her a valuable asset to the JCRP as Treasurer. Amy lives in Lenexa with her dog, Axel, and (currently) three foster dogs. In addition to her work with area animal shelters, Amy also volunteers in children’s ministry at her church. She is excited to serve her community in another area she is passionate about: turning Johnson County red again!
