AmyEditedAmy
Front Office Coordinator
Amy grew up in Ogden, UT (so she definitely has street cred) and moved here in June of 2012 with her husband, Nate, to follow his dreams of working at a prison. She was hired by Dr. Payne shortly after, because, she has like, a TON of marketable skills (sarcasm being her #1 skill). Even though they have had plenty of opportunities to move back to Utah where her family is, she stays here because of the family she has found at OAB. (Plus, her husband found a non-prison related job.) She has two adorable kids- one girl (Blake) and one boy (Cole). She enjoys listening to music (don't ask her to sing), crafting, shopping (Nate, the accountant, does NOT appreciate this "hobby") concerts, Diet Dr. Pepper, and working out (just ask her how high she can jump).  Her sisters are her best friends and her number one band is The Killers. Her dream job (besides working for Dr. Payne) is to be on Saturday Night Live, but she's secretly always wanted to be a rapper.

Movies are enjoyed as well, Lord Of The Rings being her all-time favorite. She's passionate about music and will travel long distances to see Mumford & Sons live in concert. But of all these things, she loves taking selfies the most. Well, and naps. She loves naps. Selina is also addicted to Pepsi and haircuts. Her driving skills are legendary, especially parking. She is scared by mouths, tongues, and teeth, so she only works here as a cruise director, organizing parties, and making sure she is the life of them at all times. She is terrible at math, so please, do not pay your bill when she is in the office. That shouldn't be a problem as she is never in the office. But you can always rely on her for a laugh. She loves laughing. Not too hard though, because she is known to have accidents. And crash cars.
