APPOINTED THE FIRST FEMALE UNDERSHERIFF AT THE KANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE

KANE COUNTY–Amy was born in Kane County and still lives here with her husband while also staying actively involved in coaching soccer, volunteering at school, and teaching at Elgin Community College and Aurora University.


“I find that engaging positively with students helps them not only grow academically but also have further trust in what law enforcement is doing in order to better our relationships with the community,” Amy says. “I am also actively involved in the Citizens Police Academy (CPA) hosted by the Kane County Sheriff’s Office.”

Trusting local law enforcement is important to her because Amy has recently been appointed as the first female Undersheriff at the Kane County Sheriff’s Office. During her almost 20-year career, she has worked as a Patrol Deputy, Officer in Charge, Recruitment Officer, Investigator/Detective, Crime Scene Evidence Technician, Grant Writer, Field Training Officer and Juvenile Officer. She was also a member of the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team and is an active member of the Kane County Major Crimes Task Force as a Lead Crime Scene Investigator.

“I was lucky to have amazing mentors within the Kane County Sheriff’s Office and surrounding local agencies,” she says. “My mentors taught me leadership is not about titles, positions or work hours. It’s about relationships.”
