For the last twenty-five years, Amy has worked diligently to seek justice in district and family courts, to enforce child support, and to give legal guidance to Warren Fiscal Court. Amy has been recognized for her distinguished service in child support collection by the Commonwealth and was awarded in 2012 and 2015 for her efforts as the highest performing County in the Commonwealth.
