In 2011, Amy joined RUF and worked with RUF at Samford University for three years. From there she moved to Raleigh, NC to help start RUF at Meredith College from 2014 to 2019 when she joined the team at UAB! She has a love for many things in her life which include cooking, entertaining at home with friends, podcast listening, travel, and reading as much as possible. Some of her favorite things include her dog Jasper, being outside planting and working in the yard, quirky films and Tiny Houses. Amy is grateful God has called her to UAB and considers it a great privilege to be a part of God's work on that campus.

Jon is really excited to hang out with UAB students :) Jon grew up in Atlanta and graduated from the University of Alabama in 2015. Since graduating, he’s lived internationally, worked for a major tech company as a management consultant, founded a non-profit supporting missionaries, and started a blog (that he never has time to write for haha). He’s currently in seminary at RTS Charlotte and more than anything loves walking with others towards Jesus :) He doesn’t like anything licorice, but he does like laughing with friends, mountaintops, being on the water, singing joyfully lol, lifting heavy things, live arts, flying new places, and eating tasty foods, and he’d love to do those things with you! You can text him at 678-920-9152.
