Amy was proud of her awards but most important to Amy was being a true friend and a loyal teammate at work or play. Friends, teammates, and coworkers knew they could count on Amy to work hard and be there when needed. 

In Timberline's inaugural season Amy anchored a cohesive and dominant defense. The defenders would huddle on the field before each half and mark their territory in their own special way and then would go on to defend that territory, allowing only 7 goals the entire season. The defense also dominated in the District and State tournaments where they posted several more shutouts including the state Championship game. In Amy's senior season she was moved from the defense to midfield during the District tournament. Even though she had not practiced or played midfield all season long, she had confidence she would do OK knowing that she had the "Pack" working with her.  Timberline finished 3rd in Districts but did repeat as State

Champions. Amy scored the game winning goal in the State Championship game, and when the television station reporter interviewed her after the game, she reaffirmed her conviction by not taking credit and merely stating "That there was a whole pack of wolves back there that made it happen."

Amy chose to play soccer at Boise State University (B.S.U.) where she was a starting defender as a freshman and played in every game of her four year career. She ended her career setting a record 73 games played which still sits towards the top of the record book list.

After graduating from B.S.U., Amy worked for the Meridian School District (now West Ada) teaching physical education at Centennial High School. She was also an assistant coach for Centennial's girls soccer program with the varsity team and coached for their boys and girls junior varsity tennis program.

In honor of Amy, coach Schultz and the Dunn family started this scholarship to assist a senior soccer player on their endeavor of continued studies. The Boise Public Schools Foundation awards one senior with a focus not on grades, but the well rounded person resembling those values and actions of Amy and always setting a positive example in character and selflessness.
