Amy Luhn spent most of her life in the Midwest. She is a native of Akron, Ohio and attended undergraduate school at Miami University (Oxford, OH), where she studied education. She moved to Chicago in 2002 and began teaching middle school science and language arts in Deerfield, Ill. While enjoying the hustle and bustle of Chicago life, she earned her master’s degree.
Luhn enjoys the beach life but still enjoys being on the go. She loves creating different concoctions in the kitchen, running, gardening, traveling, decorating and spending time with her husband, Jordan, and her two dogs — Lexi, a Weimaraner, and Lulu, a Schnoodle. Luhn relocated to Jacksonville in 2011, where she began learning about healthcare. Little did she know that one of her competitors at the time would soon become her husband. Jordan purchased Champion Home Health Care in October 2012, and the couple soon relocated to his hometown of Melbourne.
Luhn took over Champion Home Health Care in June of 2013 as chief executive officer. Champion Home Health Care is a “Private-Duty” Nurse Registry that provides HHA’s, CNA’s, LPN’s and RN’s to mostly seniors so they can live “Happily, Healthy and at Home.” Champion provides “hands-on” care to our aging population while also providing “peace-of-mind” for your loved one. Luhn was also part of weVENTURE’s mentoring program, which she described as “the opportunity of a lifetime.”
“During the program my mentors challenged me to set goals for my business and kept me on track to achieve them.” Luhn said. “They taught me how to think and plan strategically, use my resources and become a true leader.”
Luhn has always been a big believer in making sure people are happy, not only in her own home, but also where she works. Not only is she proud to serve the disabled, senior and veteran population of Brevard County, she is passionate about helping find a cure for Alzheimer’s.
“It’s really a combination of finding dependable, skilled caregivers as well as an internal care coordination staff that is top-notch,” she said.
