Before Amy Higgins goes to work, she makes her lunch, gets her water bottle and calls for the dogs as she goes out the door. Her ears attune to birdsong as the sweet nectar of honeysuckle permeates the morning air on her walk down the driveway to open pastures and her office - a beautiful horse barn turned studio. A place where she enjoys the solitude and fulfillment of this stage in her life when putting down roots took on a different but connected meaning.
Amy grew up in Colorado where she met and married Clay Higgins. After their son was born, Amy said she and Clay decided it was time to move to Fayetteville, Clay’s hometown, for him to take over the family-owned funeral home. In so doing, the couple invested in the community, enjoyed being close to the grandparents of their son Hunter and daughter Lucy, and embraced family values. As biking enthusiast, it was natural for Amy to became involved with biking event fundraisers. She was also a stay-at-home mom. “I got into the Booster Club and followed every move of our children,” she said.
