Presenter Bio
Amy Holloway has spent the last thirty five years working as an advocate for victims of crime. She recently retired from the Vermont Department of Corrections where she served for ten years as the Director of Victim Services during which time she worked directly with crime victim survivors and developed programs to address their needs using many Positive Psychology  and restorative justice principles.  Before assuming that role she spent twenty years as the Executive Director of several different domestic violence/sexual assault agencies in Tennessee and North Carolina.
Amy graduated from Vassar College with a BA in Religion and received her MSW from the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Work with a specialization in criminal and juvenile justice. She received her Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 where she focused much of her work on posttraumatic growth and developing an approach to post conviction victim services that focuses on resilience and growth instead of just trauma.
Amy and her husband, Frank, a retired Lieutenant with the Chapel Hill Police Department, live in a log cabin on 32 acres in the middle of nowhere in Vermont with a huge garden, an apple orchard, a great dog and lots of wildlife.  Their four grown children are all currently out of the house in different stages of finding themselves and their bliss.
