My heart is broken. So very grateful to have been able to experience #notredame in all her glory 6 years ago on the cathedral’s 850th anniversary. There is no way to stand inside a building so beautiful and not experience the glory of God. By far, our favorite stop in Paris. The history lost is immeasurable. ?
Early life and education
Amy spent most of her childhood with her middle-class family in Delaware, a small town in Ohio. There is not much known about her family beside the facts that her father celebrates his birthday on 9 July, as Amy uploaded a picture on Instagram from the birthday party on 9 July 2018, and that she has a younger sister. After matriculating from high school, Amy went on to attend Miami University in Oxford and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science, Mass Communication and Media Studies.
Amy began working at WKEF station situated in Dayton, Ohio as an assignment desk officer in 1995 – this job helped her gain a lot of experience and she soon won a position of an anchor at KFBB-TV station in Great Falls, Montana, in 1997. Amy was considered to be one of the best anchors who worked for the station, and she then moved to the position of the main anchor at WJHL station based in Johnson City in Tennessee, staying there for three years before moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma to work for KJRH station, for another three years as well while working as the main news anchor, She moved to work for FOX 35 in 2003, which made her somewhat popular – she seems to like working for FOX 35 as she is still a part of their team today.

What does Amy’s regular workday look like?
Being an anchor is rarely an easy job. Amy has to get up as early as 3 a.m., get dressed and head to work for a 0430 start After she’s done with work, she is right on time to pick up her son Colton from his school – they go home and work on homework assignments together, and she then takes her daughters to their ballet, dance, and violin lessons. She claims to not have time for anything else except for her work and kids – she goes to bed at the same time as her children which is around 8:30 p.m. Amy claims to be lucky to have someone who can help her out with the kids when she and her husband are busy – she admits that women love to be able to do everything on their own, but in these cases she is not ashamed to ask for help. She is a very busy woman indeed but always puts her family first, she even takes great care of what her children eat and doesn’t allow them to eat many sweets but rather gives them fruits and vegetables.
Personal life and likes
There are no controversies regarding Amy’s personal life, as she appears to be quite a simple family-orientated person – she married her partner Brian Brown on 30 June 2003, and the couple has three kids together named Kate, born on 26 May 2005, Caroline, and Colton, who was born on 31 October 2010. Amy loves sharing pictures of her family on her Instagram account.
Amy is a noted philanthropist, and her favorite organization is Big Brothers, Big Sisters – she mentored two little girls there in one of the school-based programs before she became one of the board members in 2004 in Central Florida. She loves spending time in nature, and her most admirable achievement is when she hiked from top to bottom of the Grand Canyon and back in one day on the Kaibab Trail. She is a big animal lover, and has a pet dog named Bogey Brown who she took from the shelter.
Big Brothers, Big Sisters
Big Brothers, Big Sisters is a non-profit organization which helps children see their potential and work on their futures. The organization has been around for more than 100 years and is one of the nation’s largest donors and volunteering organization in the US – their goal is to help children who are facing adversity find their strength by connecting them to an older professional who will do whatever it takes to change their lives, and that is what Amy has done.
