Amy previously helmed the Communications and Networking group at Merritt Group, a high-tech public relations firm. During her tenure there, she managed numerous public relations campaigns for a diverse range of high profile, global clients. She also worked on developing branding campaigns for corporate and non-profit organizations.
Amy cut her PR teeth at Ogilvy Public Relations, where she created programs for the agency’s consumer marketing clients. In addition, she was the Communications Director for a national public television network. In that role, she was tapped on several occasions by the United States Information Agency to work with broadcast executives from emerging free-market countries.
On a personal front, Amy lives in Fairfax with her very tolerant husband, mostly affable children and their perpetually troublesome Not-So-Great Dane. She earned her MA in Public Relations from Emerson College and BA in Communications from State University of New York at Oswego. This is a very good thing as her first career choice (Interpretive Dancer Extraordinaire) was fatally flawed from the get-go.
