Family time, filled with love and laughter, is a top priority for Amy, and it’s evident that her commitment to community and family go hand in hand.  For the Baldwin family, Mardi Gras is a cherished tradition that holds a special place in their hearts. Amy and her loved ones eagerly participate in the festivities and parades, creating lasting memories of fun and togetherness year after year.

Beyond her professional and family life, Amy enjoys a diverse range of interests. She has a passion for dogs, fashion, travel, food, and the enchantment of Disney World.
