Amy has been a leader and contributor to the field of international education and education abroad over the course of her career in various ways including: session panelist and chair, workshop leader, NAFSA Academy Coach, NAFSA Annual Conference session proposal reviewer, and scholarship reviewer for the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA). 

She has also held NAFSA volunteer leadership positions on both the Region XI Leadership and Trainer Corps Preparation teams. In 2018, after being nominated by colleagues, Amy was presented with the James Leck Distinguished Service Award for contributing to NAFSA Region XI in a significant manner by training, teaching, and mentoring international education professionals in New England and throughout the U.S.   

Currently, Amy serves as an Institutional Relations and Outreach Regional Director in New England for Academic Programs International (API), where she has the privilege of working closely with students and colleagues from a variety of partner institutions in New England and throughout the U.S. And this experience allows her to see first-hand what issues colleagues at partner institutions are confronting in addition to understanding what the current trends are in both Education Abroad and Higher Education.  

She oversaw the Fulbright program in Latin America and the Caribbean in her previous role as Program and Development Manager at LASPAU, an affiliate of Harvard University. Prior to that, Amy was a study abroad advisor at both Harvard University and Brandeis University. She has served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Dominican Republic, taught ESL to Fulbrighters in Managua, Nicaragua, and studied abroad in both Mexico and Spain.
