Get To Know Amy And Why She Said Yes To Being A Model
How did you get roped into doing this, and what was your first thought when asked?
I have been attending this event for the past few years and I have been asked a few times to participate as a model. I said no in the past because I wasn’t in a place where I could devote enough time to participate until this year! I am so excited that we are working with the Boys and Girls Club and I am even more excited that men are participating as models too!
Why did you say yes?
I said yes this year because I knew I would be able to really put my time into helping these kids at the Boys and Girls Club! I wanted to use my platform in the community to help these amazing kids!
What is your official job title?
I am an Associate Director with Stella & Dot.
How would you describe your job to your mother?
As an Associate Director I not only help style women, and a few good men, in our gorgeous jewelry, accessories and clothes but I also help them start their own businesses as Independent Stylists!
All families are unique, tell us about yours.
My husband Chris Hendrix and I have been together for 15 years, we are High School sweethearts that met right here in Eugene at Marist Catholic High School. We have two boys, Max 5 and Camden 18 months. We both live and work in Eugene and absolutely love our community!
Tell us about your personal passions, talents, and/or hobbies.
I am so passionate about helping other women launch their own flexible businesses with Stella & Dot! There is nothing more inspiring than seeing goals met, debt paid and watching someone become more than just financially free with their job! I am also a member of the Junior League of Eugene where I get to spend more time giving back to our community with other amazing women!
As a family we love our Oregon Ducks, fishing, yard work and watching classic movies with our boys!
What is something that you swore you would never do as a parent before you had kids that you do now?
Let them eat more sweets, they both inherited my sweet tooth!
Who inspired you when you were growing up, and why?
There were a lot of people who inspired me growing up, Oprah for one. I mean come on it’s Oprah, who doesn’t she inspire? Ellen Degeneres for unapologetically being herself and proving you can make a difference by being kind! But more than anyone, my mom Teri Fowler had a huge impact on me. Not only did she teach me how to be a good person but how to be a present, happy and caring mother. She was the most amazing parent, she was both a mom and dad in that she taught me how to cook, rock a baby to sleep and most importantly how to treat others. But she also taught me everything I know about sports, how to throw a spiral, spin a basketball on my finger and how to be a gracious loser when she beat me in one on one.
If you could go back and talk to your 12-year-old self, what would you say?
There is a lot I would tell my 12 year old self! Save your money. Get better grades in school. Stand up for what’s right even if it seems hard. Don’t let your gas gauge get below E. Read more, especially the Harry Potter books. But more than anything I would tell myself to dream big and don’t let anything hold you back. Anything is possible as long as you make a plan and put your mind to it. You can achieve anything as long as you believe!
