Haitian relief trip became life passion for Caledonia graduate, Amy (Kruckow) Heaney
Three years ago, Amy (Kruckow) Heaney never imagined that she would be a seasoned traveler and valued partner with organizations all over the world who provide relief to developing nations. But since the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010, Amy has made seven trips to the impoverished country, improving countless lives and enriching her own in the process.
A 2000 graduate of Caledonia High School and daughter of Fred and Vicki Kruckow of Caledonia, Heaney works as a pediatric ICU nurse at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and enjoys a busy life with her husband and two young children at home in Eyota. Five months after the earthquake in Haiti, Heaney was among a group of 30 medical professionals from Mayo who traveled to Haiti on a medical mission to serve those in need.
