Amy Shandy is a D20 parent, speech pathologist, community leader, and local business owner. In 2005 she founded the Shandy Clinic, an outpatient pediatric facility offering speech, occupational, and physical therapies. When Amy retired and exited from the practice in 2020, the clinic had expanded its services to include ABA therapy and Autism evaluations and grown to one of the largest privately owned outpatient pediatric clinics in the United States with 12 locations, 290 employees, $23M in annual revenue, and over 18,000 completed patient appointments monthly. The Shandy Clinic was awarded ‘Best of the Springs’ and ‘Best Workplace’ by the Colorado Springs Gazette on multiple occasions.  

Amy is married to Ty, an Air Force Academy graduate, and together they have two sons. Grant and Mason attended Eagleview Middle and Air Academy High Schools. Grant just graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in biochemistry and was recently commissioned into the Marine Corps. Mason is a rising junior at Colorado School of Mines studying computer science. 

Throughout Amy’s life she has prioritized giving back to the local Colorado Springs community and across the world. She’s coached her son’s basketball and soccer teams, taught Healthy Relationship classes, and participated in many mission trips over the years. Since retiring from the Shandy Clinic, Amy has been a key contributor to Compel Global, a non-profit organization that supports missionaries by efficiently aligning resources to field work opportunities across the world. 

Amy has now decided to broaden her impact and dedication to children and their growth by running for the Academy District 20 Board of Education. Her passion and proven capability to develop children’s full potential, creative problem-solving, and courageous leadership style will help further propel D20’s commitment to academic excellence through knowledge, skills, and character.
