Hi, I'm Amy

ABOUT ME

I currently live in North Rockwall with my husband Trace and five children: Kassidy, RHS '19 is an OU education major; Joshua, RHS senior; Cash, 2nd grade; and two-year-old twins Roman and Caroline. 

Having raised very active children in this district, I’ve had a front-row seat to the pride with which our school board leads and I intend to continue that legacy with integrity and fresh perspective. 

 

My family has been in Rockwall since 1998, and with the twins being RHS class of 2037, I am committed to the long-term success of RISD. 

CAREER

I am a former COO and owner of a Rockwall County business for 16 years. I grew the organization to over 55 employees and successfully sold in late 2016, taking that opportunity to stay home with my very busy family. I currently coach entrepreneurs and intend to utilize my business background and organizational experience to facilitate growth and progress in RISD. 

VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE

  • Served on the RISD Middle School Academic Enhancement committee in late 2019/early 2020

  • Led on the executive board of RHS Jacket Choir booster club for 5 years and have held the offices of both President and Vice President

  • Served on RHS Stingerettes Bootbackers booster club for 3 years

  • Volunteered multiple years as room mom for my now high school senior and college sophomore

  • Member of Hamm Elementary PTO and look forward to serving in the years ahead

  • Outside of RISD, active member of Rockwall Women’s League, Rockwall County Republican Women; Band of Brothers, Sisters and Friends; and an affiliate of Terry Fisher American Legion Post 117

Commitment to Rockwall ISD

Transparency - Students and Teachers First - Fiscal Responsibility - Military and Vocations

MISSION

Fresh Perspective for the Future

I will bring a fresh perspective to the board. I am prepared to challenge the status quo for the benefit of our students and educators. I would love to facilitate bringing a JROTC to Rockwall ISD. I believe strongly that straight to college isn’t necessarily the best path for every student, particularly given the rising cost of a college education and the declining return on that investment. I will bring more attention to the value of trade schools and military service.
