About Amy Lemley

She spent many years serving youth & families through the foster & adoptive system, both at the state level & at Maryhurst, the oldest child welfare agency in North America. She has also served both youth & adults in private practice. Amy has two awesome kiddos, Olivia & Noah, who keep her on her toes & running to soccer practice (& more) throughout the week, and an amazing husband, Matt, who has been her partner in crime for 16 years. She almost always wishes she was at the beach, but settles for float time in her pool with family & friends.
