Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent
Today, we have another very special Military Spouse of the Day – Amy Mullins-Boychak, a proud Marine Corps spouse, stationed in San Diego.
Amy’s heart is bigger beyond words. She is the proud owner of THAIRapy hair salon in San Diego. Amy says, “At the age of 17, I knew that serving those with special needs was my purpose in life. This is exactly what I was created to do.” Her salon specializes in and caters to people with Autism and other special needs. From the beautiful sensory wall, wheelchair accessible station, and Dusty the service dog, Amy goes above and beyond to ensure our families feel good about haircuts.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Amy for the past five years, and I can’t begin to tell you how special she is. Her soul is beautiful and the countless number of military families that she helps every single day are so grateful for her. Amy makes a difference in our military special needs community. So many times, we take things for granted, but as special needs families, we know that haircuts can oftentimes be daunting. Recently I got to witness Amy in action (for a child other than my own, for once). Her soothing presence and outside-of-the-box thinking is incredible. You’d think she owned an ABA company – she is so wonderful and patient with the children.
Amy’s best experiences with the military have been the people she’s met. “I have met so many wonderful people and I get the privilege of helping them with what could be, an overwhelming experience. My focus is and always will be on being part of the family.”
The Military Special Needs Network honors and salutes Amy Mullins-Boychak as our Military Spouse of the Day. We thank you for being such a wonderful military spouse and an amazing advocate for our families.
