Amy Broeseker says it was very clear to her that God wanted her at Samford. "By seeing the joy of helping others through the work of my father (a teacher) and my mother (a nurse), I thought I might enjoy the combination of those two vocations by teaching in the health care field someday. Several things happened to point me to this very special place and it is such a blessing to be here.”

She began her time at Samford in 1994 and thoroughly appreciates interacting with students, faculty, staff, and alumni. During her spare time, she enjoys her passions for music, mountains, gardening, and college sports. Her life verse is Jeremiah 29:11, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
