Amy is Managing Director of Portfolio Communications at Emerson Collective. She works across all of Emerson’s communication platforms, shaping high impact messages and collaborating with partners and grantees to change the conversation—to make a persuasive case, on issues from education reform to immigration and conservation, that progress is possible.
Before joining Emerson, Amy served as chief advocacy and engagement officer at Landesa, a non-governmental organization committed to reducing rural poverty by helping the poor to secure land rights. She also spent nearly a decade with the political and communications consulting firm, GMMB, where she advised the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on building support for education reform, early learning, and addressing family homelessness.
When not at work, Amy is proudly raising her son and daughter, teaching them to be resilient, grateful and unafraid – whether at school, at home, or on the court or baseball diamond.
