Special Guest speaker, Amy and Willow with You're Not Alone;
Amy Theisen Walz is an avid pup-lover, advocate for the underdog, vocalist and speaker.
Amy brings her heart, hope, and inspiration to people, and their loved ones struggling with mental health diagnoses through her non-profit organization, You’re Not Alone;
Amy shares the unconditional love of therapy pup Willow in The Monticello Middle School. Creating a non-judgmental zone by personally understanding the many trials our students experience with mental health diagnosis; anxiety, depression, bullying etc.
Amy is an aspiring author of her family’s story of hope and inspiration through her family’s mental health diagnoses and dysfunction. This story is told through an angel in their family in 2007, sweet pup Lilly Rae of Hope’s voice.
She retired from her 30-year career in the medical world and has been the owner of Amy’s Cherished Events. Using her talents of loving-on her couples and providing anxiety-relief while assisting in planning their weddings; a beautiful day to start their married life. She also creates and implements fundraising events.
Amy lives in Monticello with her husband Nick (of 33 years!), sweet 4-year-old therapy pup, Willow Grace and new little therapy pup in training, 1-year-old Spirit of Hope. She adores her three adult children, their spouses and her darling grandson, Declan. They have more grand “paws” than grandchildren! Kitty Wynter, pups Paisley, Tucker and Bingo (who is the size of a small pony!). Amy is also blessed to live within miles of her darling elderly mom. 😊
Through this mission of You’re Not Alone;, Amy strives to put a HUGE dent in the stigma surrounding mental health diagnoses, bullying and dysfunction through the sweet unconditional love of a pup! So that no child feels all alone in their mental health struggles!
