Amy is a Nashville native who graduated from Tulane University in 2015 with majors in Social Policy and Practice and International Development. While living in New Orleans, which is the prison capital of the world, she became passionate about restoring dignity to individuals who have been involved in the criminal justice system, so she started Roots of Renewal. Amy now works full-time at her venture and hopes to see it continue to grow in the future. In her spare time, Amy loves going on walks with her two dogs and attending all the festivals that New Orleans has to offer.
