A boy mom through and through, Amy McAllister is happiest when adventuring with her family—exploring nearby hikes, or finding last-minute cheap flights to somewhere new. 

While attending Utah Valley University, Amy traveled the country competing in business case study competitions, and spent a semester in China teaching English. She graduated with a B.S. in Business and Hospitality Management. 

The funniest person she’s ever met is her husband, Cort, and they laugh all the time. After getting married, Amy and Cort moved to Columbus, Ohio for Cort to attend graduate school at The Ohio State University. While there, Amy worked for the admissions committee for the Fisher College of Business and frequently uses this background to help high school seniors draft their college admissions essays. 

Always active in the church community, Amy has held positions teaching all ages, including two years where she taught a daily Bible study to high school students.  

After a brief stint in Washington, D.C., the McAllisters headed to Austin in 2013 and haven’t looked back since. They have never lived by family but love creating family wherever they are, referring to them as “Fram-ily” (friends who are family). 

Serving in the community has always been a mainstay for Amy—most recently she has been an active volunteer with refugee resettlement in Austin and enjoys delivering Meals on Wheels with her sons. 

Amy has been a teacher at The Rock Enrichment Academy for several years and considers teaching a creative art. She loves Jesus Christ, and He helps her do all kinds of things she never thought she could do, like homeschooling! 

Amy started out as a parent at Studio Prep but then loved it so much that she was determined to play a bigger role. She thinks it’s one of the coolest places she’s ever worked.
