Early life and education

Amy was raised in Milwaukee by her adoptive mother Nancy who is a nurse, and her adoptive father Arnold Pietz who worked as a truck driver.

They married in her hometown of Milwaukee on 25 May 1997 but divorced nine years later in 2006 – before she met Kenneth, she was in a relationship with her college sweetheart, and gave birth to their son in 1992. As her boyfriend left her and she didn’t want to raise the child all on her own, Amy gave her son up for adoption.

On 17 January 2010 Amy married Frank Stier, but nothing about the man is known except for his name – the two have been together ever since, and have two children.
