A Leader Changing the World
Homeschooled her entire life, Amy worked on ranches as a wrangler in her young adulthood before feeling called to pursue higher education. After first attending a community college in Oregon, Amy landed at Loyola, and, in her words, “so began the rest of my life.”
Amy is a hardworking, empathetic lover of learning who exemplifies the Jesuit values in all that she does. She leads inside and outside the classroom with a gentle demeanor and believes service is best practiced through small everyday gestures.
Her most valuable lesson learned at Loyola is the idea that everyone is a leader and should practice the values of a good leader, regardless of their title or position. She has a natural inclination for leadership, and her time at Loyola has reinforced her responsibility to be a good leader in all aspects of life.
"My time at Loyola has reinforced the idea that whether you have the natural abilities or not, you have the responsibility to be a good leader, no matter where you are in life. In your personal life, at work, or at school, you have to exemplify the values that you believe in and be a leader for the change you want to see in the world."
In terms of her future plans, Loyola has prepared her to pursue meaningful work with a positive impact on others' lives. Her passions lie in conservation, environmental care, global awareness, and social responsibility. She envisions a career in one of these realms, aiming to make a lasting, meaningful impact that extends beyond her lifetime.
