Amy served 20 years in the Marines mostly flying F/A-18 fighter jets. After her operational flying tours, she served as a Congressional Fellow and in the Pentagon as Marine Corps’ liaison to the State Department and other federal agencies. Her final assignment was as a senior instructor in the Political Science Department at the US Naval Academy teaching national security courses before retiring at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel and moving back home to Kentucky to raise her family. In 2018 and 2020, she ran U.S. House and Senate races in Kentucky.
More recently she started Honor Bound, Inc. a 501(c)(4) nonpartisan organization committed
to leadership development for women with a service background and encouraging those women to run for elected office. She has a book titled Honor Bound: An American Story of Dreams and Service coming out later this summer published by Knopf. It’s a memoir on her time in the military, what propelled her to run for office and the hard lessons in leadership, sacrifice, and patriotism she’s learned along the way.
