The Summit Academy Management Board welcomes newly elected directors Amy Martin and Michael V. Rasicci.
Amy Martin brings extensive leadership experience to the Summit Academy Management Board of Directors. She has been in healthcare administration, working at both the facility level and in regional management, for 20 years. She currently works at Certus Healthcare as a Regional Director of Human Resources.
Amy grew up in Wisconsin but remained in Ohio after graduating from Ohio University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Long Term Care Administration with a Business Minor and a Gerontology Certificate. Amy also is a Certified Dementia Practitioner.
Amy lives in Cuyahoga Falls with her two children, Lauren and Carter, who she says keep her quite busy with their activities. Her community involvement reflects her passions. She is an active volunteer at her children’s schools.

As a member of the SAM Board of Directors, Amy aspires to make a positive difference in students’ lives and “give back” to the community. “Students have always been a warm spot in my heart,” she says. “I want to provide the tools for them to be successful.”
