Earlier in her career, Amy was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Community Recovery Services, a small, disadvantaged, woman-owned, HUBZone-certified 8(a) business that provided multi-million dollar construction and infrastructure services, primarily to federal government clients. She built a reputation as a business owner who provided work opportunities for her Tribal community, and 90% of the company’s employees were either Tribal Members or others who supported Tribal Member households. Amy also oversaw the company’s finances, accounting processes, bidding strategies, contract negotiations, and project budgets, equipping her with well-rounded financial expertise that she leverages in her current role as Tribal Treasurer.
