As a Montana native and long-term resident of Bozeman, Amy Whittle has a deep understanding of our community, its residents and their unique needs. Her inherent ability to build relationships and make connections makes her a perfect addition to the BBBS team as the Community-based Program Manager. Amy’s responsibilities are three-fold. In addition to being the first point of contact for Bigs and Littles as they move through the enrollment process, she also plans creative opportunities for program participants to enjoy and builds community engagement to increase Big and Little recruitment.
Amy has spent the majority of her career focusing on children and mental health. She spent six years working as a paraprofessional and intervention specialist in early childhood education. This difficult but fulfilling work sparked an interest in caring for and nurtinging children outside the classroom. Through her creativity, willingness to overcome challenges, and ability to develop protocols, Amy is revered as a fierce leader in her professional and personal life.
In her spare time she can be found quilting, trail running, hanging out with her family and friends, or volunteering on the leadership team of Finding Freedom; a local non-profit near and dear to Amy’s heart which empowers community members to find healing through a passionate and supportive group environment.
