During her time competing in land judging she earned several awards including a 5th place individual award and her team took home the National Championship in the National Land Judging competition. She went on to participate in College Soil Judging competitions where she won several team and individual regional awards. Amy graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Plant and Soil Science and a Master’s of Science in Soil Science with a minor in Geology.
In her free time, Amy likes to run her small business and play and garden outside with her family. Amy lives with her husband, Jeremy, and their two children Garrett and Paityn in Newalla, OK.
