Joining our program in the Fall of 2019, Amy Laffan grew up in Georgia where she participated in cross country and basketball at Calvary Christian School in Columbus, Georgia. She earned a Political Science degree from the University of Texas at El Paso. Today, she continues to be an avid runner, usually running between 50-60 miles a week, in her words, “for fun”. Coach Laffan has lived in El Paso for 18 years after moving with her husband, Jason, who works full time with Casas por Cristo, an organization that does mission work through building houses and planting churches. Amy Laffan is the loving mother of three boys, Jonas, Kash, and Titus. Her family is now proud to call El Paso home.
