Amy and her husband, Abe, have four children in the Lovejoy Independent School District. She is a graduate of the inaugural Leadership Lovejoy Class and Leadership Allen/Fairview Class XXIV. Amy’s experience in the Leadership Lovejoy Class inspired her to create and implement the Lovejoy Letter Campaign as a way for the community to show their gratitude to the teachers, administration and staff, and to recognize how much they are valued.
Amy has served as Puster's PTA President and previously served the PTA Executive Board as VP-Membership and Secretary. In 2016, Amy was honored with the Lifetime PTA Award. She also serves on the Lovejoy Foundation Board.
Amy is a graduate of Baylor University with a BBA in Marketing, as well as a second degree from Ouachita Baptist University in Early Childhood Education. After teaching for four years in the classroom and following the birth of their first child, Amy opened a Kumon Math and Reading Center in McKinney. After ten years of growing a successful Kumon Center (and three more children later), she sold the business in May 2014. Presently, Amy is an event planner and fundraiser for the Baylor Scott and White Health Care Foundation.
As a member of the Junior League of Collin County, Amy volunteers on the JUMP committee (Juvenile Mentoring Program). This committee works in conjunction with the Juvenile Justice Division of Collin County to serve as mentors, and to conduct training sessions for juveniles aged 12-15 who have been placed on probation for nonviolent misdemeanor offenses. Along with her two oldest daughters, Amy is also a member of National Charity League (NCL)-Allen/Lovejoy.
Amy’s husband is the lead pastor of Living Life Church, where the Smith family is actively involved. Amy enjoys tennis competitively on a USTA and TCD team.
