Episode #48

Amy Dahlen has called Santa Cruz home for nearly 25 years. She and her husband are raising their daughters to be leaders in our community by serving, supporting and connecting with the people and places that make Santa Cruz such an awesome place to live.

Amy works in physical therapy helping people in assisted living and sub-acute rehab recover from injury or illness to be as independent as possible. She volunteers by serving as President of Westlake PTA at her daughters’ school.

Amy was one of the organizers of the original Women’s March Santa Cruz County in 2017 where 10,000 people marched together in solidarity. Amy is excited to share about the work she does with a local non-profit, Kidpower.

Kidpower is dedicated to child protection advocacy and empowering people of all ages and abilities with life skills for safety and success. Since 1989, Kidpower has protected nearly 5 million people, including those with special needs, from bullying, cyberbullying, abuse, kidnapping, and other violence by empowering them with awareness, knowledge, and skills.
