NDCYP Member Spotlight: Amy Mueller, Dallas County Commissioner Mike Cantrell, District 2
Tell us about yourself:
I graduated from Bishop Lynch High School and attended the University of Mississippi. In college I joined Kappa Alpha Theta and Alpha Kappa Psi, a business fraternity. I am also a member of Junior League of Dallas, Dallas Safari, Daughters of the Republic of Texas, and Daughters of the American Revolution.
I am proud to say I have worked for Mike Cantrell, Dallas County Commissioner, District 2 since December 2011 and I absolutely LOVE going to work every day.
How did you get involved with the NDCYP?
Commissioner Cantrell has been involved with the North Dallas Chamber for several years so it was a natural progression.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in your career so far?
It’s important to work with and for someone that shares the same religious values as you. In my experience, it makes it much easier to trust you won’t be put in a situation that would compromise your moral or ethical standards.
What’s something interesting about you?
Through my involvement with Junior League, I volunteer at Baylor with Twice Blessed House. This placement allows me to give back to the community in a way that I can help out families similar to my own. I was honored as one of Top Volunteers in 2012; which was truly amazing because I feel like I get more from them, than I could ever give. Every time I go to volunteer, someone pulls me aside and says, “THANK YOU!” It melts my heart every time and reminds me I am just one person in this big world.
What are you enjoying most about your membership with NDCYP?
It’s motivating to be around like-minded people. I’m a really big proponent of giving back to the community; which is one of the core missions of the NDCYP. I also get to learn a lot at the YP Connect over Lunch programs that I may not have known otherwise.
