Amy came to CIU in the spring of 2013 as an adjunct faculty member in finance. In January 2014, she joined the resident faculty and is a full-time professor in the School of Business & Professional Studies. Amy is completing her PhD in Organizational Leadership at Columbia International University.
After earning her MBA from Baylor University in 2002, Amy worked for the Magazine Publishing Group as a Customer Relationship Manager. From there, God called Amy into full-time ministry leadership. As a ministry leader, Amy used the tools she learned studying business every day. For example, she used accounting and finance to appropriately steward ministry resources, marketing to promote activities, operations management to organize effective and efficient events, and leadership to effectively work with interns, volunteers, and colleagues. Amy continues to serve at her church as the Director of Student Ministry.
Amy loves to equip students with the invaluable tools that are a part of studying business. The skills and principles learned in CIU’s Business Administration program create a solid launch pad for any career. Amy’s desire is to help students understand these foundational business principles so they can go into businesses around the world and point people to Christ by demonstrating Godly leadership.
