Amy Huntley is a multifaceted individual with a passion for serving others and a love for the outdoors. She graduated from the University of Mount Union in 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, along with minors in Finance, Psychology, and Gender Studies. After completing her undergraduate studies, Amy embarked on an adventurous journey, spending a season working as a trail crew worker in Yosemite National Park, an experience she describes as one of the most formative seasons of her life.

Upon returning to Ohio, Amy joined Applewood Treatment Centers as a Treatment Specialist for youth before pursuing her graduate studies at Cleveland State University. There, she obtained her Master’s degree in Public Administration with a concentration in Nonprofit Management. After graduation, Amy transitioned into the Development & Marketing department at the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park, where she worked for two years before assuming the role of Manager of Community Outreach for Western Reserve Land Conservancy.

In March of 2020, Amy felt called by God to join Light of Hearts Villa, a decision that felt particularly serendipitous as it was conveniently close to her home in Bedford. She firmly believes in the saying, “You don’t find the Villa, the Villa finds you,” as her journey there has been marked by divine guidance. Having witnessed firsthand the impact of the Villa’s services through her own family’s experience with dementia-related illness, Amy has a deep appreciation for the organization’s mission and the care it provides after her own father moved in as a resident in 2022.

Outside of her professional life, Amy’s love for conservation and the outdoors continues to play a significant role. She finds joy in gardening, volunteers with local garden clubs, and enjoys backpacking trips and hiking adventures on local trails. Amy treasures spending quality time with her husband, Julien, their son, Nico, and their sweet pitbull named Honey Green. Together, they often embark on traveling adventures and remain actively involved in Northeast Ohio’s vibrant music scene.
