Amy is passionate about nursing, OHSU and education and wants to encourage other alumni to get involved. “I’m very blessed for the education I received from OHSU,” said Amy. “I had wonderful faculty who were supportive and challenged me. It’s a magnificent program and I’m part of the OHSU alumni council because I want to give back and encourage others to be part of this great school.”
