Awesome Amy! #EPU40

Tell us about your EPU story—how did you get here?

I knew, in making the decision to go back to work after staying home with my children, that I would have to be doing something meaningful and contributory. I remember leaving my interview with Toni, Barb, and Marion and thinking, “What a unique opportunity I have in front of me- this is worth going back to work for.”

How long have you been affiliated with EPU?

I have been working at EPU for just over four years.

Tell us about your family?

I have an amazing life filled with the love of a great husband, four kids (17, 15, 11, 9) , 2 dogs, and some other wildlife too.

What’s your favorite part about EPU? What’s your favorite EPU memory?

My favorite part of EPU and my favorite memories are the moments of vulnerability: the families that open their lives in trust, a coworker’s compassion, or a meaningful Reflective Practice.

What’s in the cards for your future? What are your plans for EPU moving forward?

I have been more diligent with each year that passes to be “present in the moment.” So, I don’t know what the future holds but I am appreciative of this day and the those that I cross paths with.

What has EPU taught you?

Working at EPU has taught me about the fragility and the resiliency of people, that you never know someone’s story therefore compassion is our greatest gift, and that until we are able to critically look at our own biases or privileges, than we can’t empathetically  understand the plight of others.
