Amy Davis is a mother of three and a full-time medical coder. She does a lot even though she has a full time job and three teenagers. Her oldest is Dalton Dodds, a 19-year-old full-time cashier at Kroger. Her middle child and only girl, Bryanna Dodds- me writing this article- is a high school senior. The last of the trio is Garret Dodds, a freshman in high school.
