Quote that inspires Amy

"We never know how our small activities will affect others through the invisible fabric of our connectedness. In this exquisitely connected world, it's never a question of 'critical mass.' It's always about critical connections." Grace Lee Boggs

The best part of Amy's job

I have the best job. I get to learn, work and experience with students, faculty, and non-university community members what is possible.

Fun facts
I love paddling, small and big canoes, and I am a member of the Ithaca Dragon Boat Club.

I have been living and raising my family in Tompkins County for 20+ years in the traditional homeland of Gayogohó:nǫˀ. I believe that change can happen when folks respectfully and humbly connect by honoring each other’s professional, academic and personal backgrounds.
