For Amy, a restaurant is like a big a family—everyone takes care of each other, and no one gets left behind. Born and raised in Missoula, MT, she earned degrees in the Culinary Arts and Food Service Management at the University of Montana before moving to Fort Collins in 2015. The day after she arrived, she joined the Jax family and has been here ever since—rising through the ranks from Pantry Line Cook to Sous Chef to Chef de Cuisine. She loves the close relationships that Jax maintains with local farmers, and looks forward to building out the seasonal menus that reflect their daily harvest.
When she’s not cooking up a storm at Jax, you’ll find Amy hiking and fishing in the great outdoors with her fiancee and their dog, sipping on some local craft beer, playing cribbage or rummy, or perfecting her tailgating game during football season.
