Amy Nix serves as executive director of Coffee County Children’s Advocacy Center. Nix uses her experience and knowledge of child abuse prevention and intervention to work together with the Department of Children’s Services, law enforcement and the District Attorney’s office and ensure Coffee County CAC continues to battle child abuse in the community. She enjoys witnessing the positive impact the CAC’s services have on families.
“My favorite part of serving in this field is working with the families and seeing the progress they make through the treatment process,” Nix said. “I love connecting with people and seeing they are feeling heard and feeling they have a support system through a process that can be very grueling sometimes.”
Prior to her position at Coffee County CAC, Nix served as the family advocate at Junior’s House in Fayetteville, Tennessee, for 14 years. She also provided child abuse prevention for schools and community. Prior to her position at Junior’s House, Nix worked as an in-home counselor for Youth Villages, an organization supporting children and young people who face emotional, mental and behavioral problems. Her experience also includes serving as a family treatment coordinator and placement coordinator for a private foster care agency and a teacher for foster care parents.
Nix earned her bachelor’s degree in social work from Middle Tennessee State University. She also holds a certificate in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
