Amy Marshall - Academic Major: Nursing; Engagement Focus: Community-Based Learning and Volunteerism

Amy Marshall, a UNF School of Nursing graduate from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has shown great commitment and dedication working with Jacksonville's vulnerable populations through her service to the Northeast Florida Chapter of the American Red Cross, for which she has been engaged in the Home Fire Campaign as well as disaster sheltering and relief services. Currently, Amy is heading a project to create more effective fliers for the Home Fire Campaign that cater to a lower literacy level and plans to submit those changes to the American Red Cross national headquarters.  Lastly, Amy believes that her immersion into Jacksonville’s communities will make me a better nurse and patient advocate.  She believes we should all embrace the differences in each other and use that as fuel, not fear. And that we must work together, clients and professionals, to improve outcomes.
