Other Little-Known Facts

As the oldest of five daughters, you could say that leadership (and sales) are in Amy’s DNA. She always knew that she would either build something or lead something. Her first significant leadership role was at 20 years old, elected president of her university sorority, where she led an organization of over 100 young women. That fueled her passion for leadership. Her first true sales job was an inside sales role for value-added reseller in the technology industry. She applied for the job cold, and that was the springboard launching her passion for sales (and meeting her future husband).

Amy is a Cleveland, Ohio native and University of Dayton graduate, with degrees in English and Communication.
