Amy first began her work at Dominican University in the fall of 2011 as Music Liturgist, directing the Liturgical Choir, coordinating liturgy, and training pastoral musicians. She then served as University Minister for Liturgy and the Arts between 2015-2021, taking on Coordination of the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation Center in the spring of 2021.
