Ask a Business Administration Alum:
Amy Anderson Feathers '01

Amy Anderson Feathers ’01 describes herself as a hometown girl, so being able to stay in Winchester and go to college was very appealing to her, which is ultimately why she chose Shenandoah. Feathers appreciated the smaller class sizes the university had to offer, as well as the professors’ accessibility.

“The diversity I encountered at SU marks my heart forever,” said Feathers. “I was the hometown girl experiencing international cultures and beliefs through my peers, while also representing Winchester, Virginia, in how I carried myself.”

Feathers’ fondest memories of Shenandoah involved being a part of Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), which helped her sustain a leadership spirit throughout her time at the 
Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business. She led the
competition team and said traveling to Kansas City, Missouri, to represent Shenandoah in a competition was thrilling. It was easy for her to become a part of SIFE since she was a member of the Future Business Leaders of America in high school.

Feathers is the director of marketing at Greenway Engineering in Winchester, Virginia. In this position, she is essentially the brand ambassador for the company to both internal and external customers. She wants to “internally cultivate excitement for the excellent work being done and a pleasant culture where each person feels valued for their contributions.”
