I am a storyteller, content strategist, and a communications manager. An impatient optimist, your most fervent cheerleader, an emotional being, and a rational confidant. All of that with a side of wanderlust and a grounding of home in the Pacific Northwest.
With more than 15 years of communications, marketing and PR strategy for non-profit organizations, mission-driven companies, I love working with teams and executives to bring out a rich story that moves people to act, from speeches to marketing campaigns and digital content. I’ve worked across a wide range of industries, from gaming and tech to health and wellness, from global health to sustainable design. I’ve built multimedia content teams to empower thousands to build their best lives. In short, it’s my job to tell stories that move people.
Your brand, mission and team all have a story – it’s my job to bring out the best and share it with the world. As a ghostwriter for more than 15 years, my writing has appeared in Forbes, NBC’s Today.com, and The Seattle Times, among other outlets. In fact, a few articles went viral, bringing on some additional media coverage.
Content Strategy + Production
Write and produce compelling content that gets your message across. Whether it’s video reels, podcasting or thought leadership op-eds, I can share your story the way you’d tell it.
A stellar communications strategy is designed to get your story noticed. That media attention translates to more sales and increased awareness, allowing you to tell your story on your own terms.
I’ve placed stories on NBC’s Today Show, Good Morning America, Associated Press, Bloomberg, Fast Company, Wired, INC, TechCrunch, The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, CNBC, People, Quartz, The Seattle Times, Dallas Morning News, and more.
A Few Notable Projects
From targeted communications plan to robust content direction, here is a selected group of projects to get a sense of my style, strategy, and savvy.
Amy is one of the most effective professional communicators I have ever worked with. Her ability to drive strategic campaigns and execute her work flawlessly and under quick-turn deadlines, while still being able to lead and develop a team is incredible, and I cannot recommend her enough.Lestraundra AlfredFounder, Balanced Black Girl
Amy is quite simply one of the most effective and engaging communications and outreach professionals I have ever worked with. She is an outstanding writer, able to translate complex health and science information into easy-to-understand education materials that are changing the way the world views addiction and increasing the visibility and impact of her organization. She is extremely adept at leveraging social and digital communications to achieve program goals, and she is a savvy relationship-builder, which has paid huge dividends for the NCRG. People want to work with Amy because she is smart as a whip, energetic, curious, kind and motivated to deliver above and beyond on every project. I cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone searching for an outstanding communications leader for their organization!Holly WetzelSenior Director of Marketing and Member Communications at NRECA
Hands down Amy is one of my favorite people to have ever worked with. She is genuine, positive, and an incredibly hard worker. Amy breathes, lives, and embodies what you want in a public relations manager. She quickly identifies a company's strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities and strategically aligns that company with the appropriate media and influencers. It's incredible to watch her in action. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her and I look forward to future opportunities to collaborate!Jessica Rhyan TevebaughDirector, Brand & Awareness at Aduro
