Amy Cappellanti-Wolf grew up in a close-knit Italian family in West Virginia, the child of first-generation immigrants. Her father owned a restaurant, where he worked six days a week, roping in young Amy and her siblings at every chance.

After graduating from West Virginia University with a degree in journalism, she went on to earn a master’s in industrial and labor relations. That was where she found her fascination with HR.
