District 1

AmyAmy and her husband, Jim, chose Bonita Springs for their home in 2010. It was an obvious choice because of the community's attractive and varied offerings. Amy is proud of her first-generation Italian American heritage, having experienced first-hand the miracle of the "American Dream". She has a strong academic record, graduating with Honors in Math from Chestnut Hill College with a B.S. degree. She then earned a Master's degree from The University of Hartford and a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut, both in Economics.

She began her career with the National Security Agency, later serving as an analyst at the Institute for Defense Analysis. She married Dan Burns, a U.S. Navy medical officer, and welcomed two children into her family. Amy later taught as an Adjunct Professor of Economics at Trinity College before joining a securities firm. More recently, before moving to Bonita Springs, she co-founded a successful investment advisory firm in Hartford, Connecticut. These final career moves proved crucial when she had to contend with untimely widowhood. As the sole supporter of her young family, she discovered that hardship can build strength.

Her life experiences have molded Amy and taught her valuable lessons about financial prudence, problem-solving and how best to build a community. On the city council, she will strive for efficient and careful spending, mindful of the burdens that debt places on taxpayers. She understands the importance of government, business and citizens working together to improve their communities. She is committed to an open, transparent and reliable government process. Amy was first elected to the Bonita Springs Council in 2016 and starts her second term in 2018.

She has been active in her community serving on various resident committees included HOA President, the Colony Resident Council, and Colony Landscape liaison. She participates in the Women's Giving Circle of SWFL serving on its Grants Committee and annually participates in the Golisano Children's Hospital Charity Luncheon committee work. She organizes a monthly women's discussion group and once in a while finds time to practice her piano. Her daughter lives and works in NYC. Her Denver family includes two wonderful grandchildren, her son and daughter-in-law.
