Candidates for Class Vice President - Amy (Mills) Woodward
Hello USNA Class of 1999,
First & foremost, it was so fun to see you all at our 20-year reunion. I truly appreciate the work that went into the planning and execution of our reunion. I know it can often be a thankless job and a burden that should not be placed upon the same people year in and year out. With that being said, I have volunteered to run for Class Vice President. I am extremely grateful for my time at USNA and often reflect fondly upon my time there and in the fleet. In my opinion, the best way to show gratitude is to volunteer to help towards our future fundraising to leave our legacy at USNA and toward future events to bring us back together as a class to celebrate our time together at USNA.
To share a bit about myself, I am originally from New York. Two of my nine siblings also graduated from the Academy. I played Varsity Soccer for four years at USNA. Upon graduation, I served as a Surface Warfare Officer for two tours onboard the USS Spruance DD-963. Afterwards, I spent a year at Afloat Training Group, Mayport before transitioning to the civilian world. I married our classmate, Jason Woodward, whose aviation status took us to Whidbey Island, WA in a Search & Rescue status. While in WA, I began working in medical sales. Shortly after his end of tour, we relocated to Alaska where we currently reside with our two daughters, Lola (13) and Reese (11). I currently work for a medical device company selling implantable devices for chronic pain patients. Additionally, we own a commercial real estate company and a couple of car washes in AK.
I am currently a Blue & Gold Officer and serve on Alaska Senator Sullivan’s Nomination Board. My husband is the Area Coordinator for the state of Alaska. It is incredibly rewarding to help vet the future of the Naval Academy. I am also extremely humbled and often wonder how I was ever accepted.
In closing, I ask for your vote as Vice President of the great class of 1999. You have my commitment to work hard on your behalf to leave a respectable and prideful legacy of our class at the Naval Academy. Also, I like to party and look forward to working towards some kickass reunions in the future.
Thank you for your time & consideration!
