Amy Knoll is a native of Chicago, she moved to New Orleans in 2008 after falling in love with a Katrina evacuee who needed to come home. So here she is in New Orleans and we are happy to have her!
Since arriving to the Big Easy, Amy has collaborated on several notable projects, culminating with the opening of her own store Bon Castor, in Bywater. She really dove into our city and is thrilled to be absorbed into a community so rich in creativity and culture.
Amy became involved with Sula after adopting Calliope, a pit-mix from the LA/SPCA . She quickly recognized that pit bulls and pit mixes are the unofficial Dog of New Orleans, and wanted to contribute towards health and safety of all the dogs in the City. We are delighted that Amy has stepped up to the position as Event Coordinator and will be a major player in the continued growth of the Sula Foundation’s presence in New Orleans.
Amy lives in the New Marigny with Sophie a chow/lab mix & Calliope a pit mix (pictured), two cats named Cleo and Erik……. and the boyfriend who recruited her here in the first place. Feel free to bring your dog by the shop so Amy can gush over him/her and share treats. We hear she is very good at belly rubs, too!
