Three months prior to being discharged from the United States Air Force in 1990, Air Force Amy applied to the nearby Chicken Ranch brothel in Nevada, and worked continuously as a legal and licensed prostitute in legal brothels in Nevada until her retirement in 2012. She has worked at the Chicken Ranch, the Mustang Ranch (from 1994 to 1997), the Sagebrush Ranch, the Old Bridge Ranch, the Cherry Patch Ranch, Sheri's Ranch, the Kit Kat Guest Ranch, and the Moonlite Bunny Ranch since 2000. As a legal Nevada prostitute, she worked as an independent contractor who turned in half of her money made at the brothel to the house. She earned US$10,000 to $50,000 a month. Amy often reminisced about her Air Force career, and persuaded her employer to offer a Military Appreciation Night: a special promotion for free sex to soldiers. In January 2013, after retiring from the Bunny Ranch in 2011 due to health issues with her back, Air Force Amy is back in action at the World Wide Famous Moonlite Bunny Ranch.
