Amy Luethmers is Minnesota native, yet can't seem to get on board with the cold winters! Amy and her husband, Steve, have been married for 12 years, and love calling Mankato home. She and Steve have two children that couldn't be more different. Isaac, 11, is their rule-following, kind- hearted son who enjoys swimming and reading. Amelia, 4, who challenges every rule, can be found singing and dancing just about any time of the day. Amy is a paraprofessional with the Mankato school district, and believes that every child deserves the chance to be successful. She is committed to being active daily, and early morning runs with girlfriends is her favorite way to stay fit!
