She was among the youngest to ever earn a spot in their prestigious Million Dollar Club for overall contribution as revenue generator. In an effort to spend less time traveling – and more time making a difference, Amy took a position as a Director with the American Heart Association in 2010. It was there that she discovered how dependent our local non-profits are on partnerships with proprietary businesses. As her passion for the local community grew, Amy decided it was time to leave her position with the American Heart Association in order to join her husband at Auburn Volkswagen, ultimately coming on board to oversee their community relationships and philanthropic efforts.
