Rev. Amy Morrison Heinrich

    Amy Morrison Heinrich is current president and chair of the Harold M. and Adeline S. Morrison Family Foundation. Based in Chicago, the principal mission of the Foundation is to work in partnership with others to advance economic and ecological health through environmental education programs, particularly for underserved communities. Amy is an ordained Presbyterian pastor who likes to think of herself as an "eco-theologian" because of her passion for stewardship of creation and Celtic spirituality. Her church is now officially an "Earth Care Congregation" with an organic garden serving food pantry guests. Amy and her husband Rob have a high school daughter Emma; twin sons, Ian and Max, who are working in New York City; and Chicago post college, and two Irish terriers, Clancy and Murphy. The Heinrichs live in Prairie Crossing, a conservation community in Grayslake, IL. Amy is past vice president of the Prairie Crossing Charter School board, a school committed to environmental education. She was instrumental in raising $1.2 million for the school's capital campaign to complete their LEED certified campus. Amy loves to cook, entertain, and exercise—especially outdoors. One of her favorite pastimes is hiking the beautiful prairie trails with her dogs at sunset.
