Amy Woods – March 2021
Amy Wood joined CASA in the middle of 2020, and she was referred by a friend. She did not know how it would go, starting in the middle of the pandemic, but she was ready to help change a child’s story. Amy has now been on her case for nine months. Amy’s child, in her words, ”despite all of the things he has been through, he is the most resilient, happy kid, and I just love being his CASA!” This is not to say her case is easy. Due to Covid-19 restrictions Amy and the child have had to meet outside, and when it was too cold, they had to get creative. Amy drives a minivan, so she pulls up, cranks up the heat, leaves the van door open, and they sit inside and play Uno and eat fiery Cheetos! It’s a routine they do every other week that they both enjoy.
Amy is married with 3 children- a freshman, a seventh grader and a fourth grader – and a dog. When she is not eating fiery Cheetos and running to sports events with her kids, she is the media clerk at Rockbridge Elementary and the President of the PTA.
