Amy Heflin is a Nurse Organ Transplant Coordinator at Presbyterian Hospital. She is from Dallas, Texas but moved to New Mexico and graduated high school in Clovis, NM and then went on to graduate from The University of New Mexico. She spent part of her professional career working in local media, but ultimately felt her passion was within the field of nursing. While most of her family still lives Texas, she adores New Mexico for its breathtaking mountains and numerous opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities. But, she says, the real beauty of New Mexico is found within each small town and small community that make up the heart of our state.
Also, Amy’s younger sister donated part of her liver to save Amy’s son when he needed a life-saving liver transplant as a newborn baby. Years after his transplant, she still says it’s the biggest miracle she’ll ever see. She is honored to be a part of the New Mexico Kidney Foundation because she believes in transplant, organ health, and the road that this foundation paves to help many New Mexicans around the state.
