Get to Know Amy
What drives you each day at the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
I’ve been involved with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation as a Team JAF Boston Marathon charity runner for the past five years. I take great comfort and pride in knowing that the dollars I raise make a direct and tangible impact in the lives of those in need. Working with JAF is just a further extension of that – knowing that the work I do each day furthers the mission of the Foundation.
What is your favorite thing about working for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
My co-workers are my friends, but they comprise a ‘family’ here at JAF! I get to see the people I call friends and work with them daily – what could be better than that?
What’s a “fun fact” about yourself that others may be surprised to learn?
I come from a large blended family of seven brothers and sisters, ranging from age 21-48!
