Amy joined the Arise team in January 2019. As a Dodgers fan, she first heard about Arise Africa through Kershaw’s Challenge and soon began her involvement through Student Sponsorship. She took her first mission trip to Zambia with Arise in 2017 where she met her sponsored child. In that moment, she knew a part of her would always be left in Zambia. She visited again in 2018 before getting hired on full-time, buying a one-way ticket from California to Fort Worth! She has since had to learn how keep her plants alive during the Texas summers!
Amy manages all media and communication content which includes keeping supporters up-to-date on Arise’s efforts in Zambia. She is passionate about sharing the stories and giving a voice to the children and families we serve.
