Amy J. Hawkins graduated magna cum laude with her Bachelor of Arts degree from Spring Arbor University in May of 2003 with a double major in communications and psychology.

Amy currently serves as the Executive Director for a non-profit, non-partisan, state-wide organization, Citizens for Traditional Values based in Lansing, Michigan.  As the state’s longest surviving organization of its kind, for 30 years CTV has worked to identify, educate, train and mobilize conservative citizen leaders, voters, candidates and elected officials to impact Michigan’s political arena.

For over 10 years, she has overseen efforts including: working alongside legislators to  ensure the passage of family-friendly public policy; organizing and educating the faith community grassroots on how to be effective citizens; training and relationship building with potential and current elected leaders; assisting on ballot initiatives; producing annual Legislative Briefings; overseeing field coordinators; managing the group’s PAC endorsement process including voter guide production and delivery; office communication and administrative management. All efforts with this organization move toward the goal of impacting conservative, traditional Judeo-Christian values in all 83 counties of Michigan.

In the fall of 2004, she took a leave of absence from CTV to serve as the Church and College Outreach Director for President George W. Bush’s campaign in Michigan by working with the Michigan Republican State Party and the Republican National Committee. She oversaw a staff of 17 who were responsible for distributing approximately 500,000 voter guides for President Bush on several college campuses and in hundreds of churches across the state.

She has since served on the Right to Life Board of Greater Lansing; as the Chair and Founder of the Spring Arbor University’s Lansing alumni chapter; served as an elected Precinct Delegate with the Republican party; mentored high school and college age girls; served with Student Statesmanship Institute; has worked with nationally and internationally known ministry, The Oak Initiative; and is Co-Founder of the Russell Kirk Fellowship.

Her passions include family, reading, writing, running and traveling. Amy currently resides in Jackson County, Michigan.
