HOLLYWOOD — Amy Johns has been working for the Seminole Tribe of Florida since she was a kid in the Job Training Partnership Act, or JTPA program.

She is originally from the Brighton reservation. Johns is also a member of the Panther Clan, and the daughter of Bruce and Patty Waldron.

Johns is a proud graduate of Arizona State University where she obtained her master’s degree in public administration, emphasizing organizational behavior/development and policy analysis. She also holds a certificate in American Indian studies, and another in accounting operations. She was also a Senate intern for the state of Arizona.

After she was graduated in 2001, she accepted a position with the Tribe as executive assistant to the then executive administrative officer from 2002 until 2004. Johns was later promoted by the Tribe to vice treasurer and flourished in her new role.

Johns said she is excited to take on many new responsibilities as she assumes the role of Tribal executive administrative officer.

“The challenges which allow me to take steps to pursue true altruism for all Tribal members and our future Tribal generations,” she said.
