Amy Downs

Re:Imagine – Your One Life

President/CEO, Allegiance Credit Union

Amy began her career as a teller working for Federal Employees Credit Union located in the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. She was trapped for hours beneath the rubble after the Oklahoma City bombing in April 1995. It was this near-death experience that launched her on a journey of self-improvement. After going back to college, losing 200 lbs, and becoming an Ironman Triathlete, Amy is now the CEO of the same credit union she worked at in 1995 and uses her transformation to share hope with and encourage growth in others.
