She is now in a probationary continuous position. In November 2018 she received her Masters of Science in Nursing degree with a focus in nursing education.

Amy has been a registered nurse in Central Alberta for 17 years. While she has worked in various areas of nursing, she has spent most of her career in orthopedics. She received her specialization in orthopedics from the Canadian Nurses Association in 2008.
