Community Health Worker
Meet Amy Hull, Lamprey Health Care's new Community Health Worker! Amy's role is crucial as she bridges the gap between healthcare providers and the community. She actively engages with individuals, educates on preventive care, and connects people with vital resources. Lamprey Health Care is fortunate to have Amy as an essential part of our team, enhancing the overall health and care of our community!
LHC: Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up? How did you get here?
Amy: I grew up in Walpole, MA with my parents, and two older sisters. I lived in Massachusetts for years, but decided to move to New Hampshire when my husband got a new job here. We’ve been living in Amherst, NH for the past 20 years.
After working in the Human Service Field and Parks and Recreation Field I decided to make a career change. I heard about Lamprey Health Care and thought it would be great place for me.
LHC: What do you like most about working at Lamprey Health Care?
Amy: Although I’m new to Lamprey Health Care, so far the best part of working here is getting to know all the people. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly, I’ve already learned so much and feel at home. I’ve also enjoyed getting out into the community and meeting patients, and learning about all the wonderful services that Lamprey offers.
LHC: Did you always want to work in healthcare? What would you do if you weren't doing this?
Amy: I never seriously thought about working in the healthcare field. When I learned about Lamprey Health Care I was intrigued to learn more about the services. I have worked in the Human Service Field in the past, but it wasn’t with a focus on medical healthcare so for me combining my human service background and healthcare felt like a great fit. If I wasn’t a Community Health Worker I would love to work with animals.
LHC: What are some of your favorite things to do outside of work?
Amy: Some of my favorite things to do are spending time with my four daughters, my husband Jerry, and my Pomeranian named Tater-Tot (Tate for short) His name is fitting because he looks just like a tater tot french fry!
I also love to hike, explore all the different areas of NH, and enjoy spending time with my extended family and friends.
LHC: What advice would you give to others to be healthy?
Amy: One of my favorite sayings is “Health is Wealth” … not only for one’s physical body, but also the mind and spirit. For me that means spending time outdoors, especially the woods. I love living in NH because we’re surrounded by some many hiking/walking trails. I try to walk everyday so I’m staying connected to nature. During the early months of Covid I made my own walking trail on my property. It’s a little loop in the woods behind my house so I’m easily able to go for a little walk whenever I can and clear my mind.
