    Receiving her first basketball hoop at the age of 3 her love of the sport consumed her life starting her first team play on a co-ed team at the Tempe Boys and Girls Club.  As soon as she hit 7th grade she participated in the sport every school year, playing varsity all four years of high school.  At the age of 12 she entered a skills competition sponsored by Nike and Lady Foot Locker.  There were more than 10,000 girls across the country competing in this program and Amy was one of 36 finalists to advance to the Championships in Florida where she took 8th place.  Her summers were filled with  AAU club ball as a starting 2 guard for the Future Arizona Starz under the tutelage of Jerry Lee.   Being the youngest player on this team she travelled and competed against players who were 2 or 3 years older.  In 1998 the Starz qualified for the AAU Nationals in Louisiana where they competed and took 2nd place.
