Amy has worked with many different populations over the years including seniors, individuals living with HIV/AIDS and developmentally and intellectually delayed persons.
Amy enjoys interacting with the residents of both houses and staff and looks forward to advancing BSL's mission while focusing on its core values of providing supportive housing services to our residents.
