Amy earned her undergraduate Nursing degree from Grand Canyon University and completed her Master’s degree in Nursing from Duke University. She is delighted to be part of the Center where researchers are conducting experiments and gaining new insights into the mechanisms of diabetes and obesity, which may then be translated to clinical practice. As an outdoor enthusiast and avid yoga practitioner, health and nutrition are areas of personal interest to her. She considers it a privilege to be among such great thinkers, innovators, and dreamers who each in their respective capacity seek to improve the well-being of others in the Community.
