Amy's super power:
Storytelling. I enjoy visiting with our participants and their families, learning each individuals unique story. It brings me great joy to compose and share their stories with the heart in which they were conveyed.
"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has-or ever will have-something inside that is unique to all time." - Fred Rogers
