CEC with Charles River Watershed Association
Originally from the mountains of western North Carolina, Amy developed a love for and connection to her ‘backyard’ at a young age. As she learned about Appalachia specific challenges, her love for the region transformed into an unshakable moral responsibility, and now drives her passion to expand environmental stewardship in a world of ecological and socioeconomic inequalities and violences. She brought this passion to Appalachian State University, where in 2019, she graduated with her B.S. in Sustainable Development. She specialized in geospatial analytics, and researched methods of engaging & educating public members with scientific data to provoke community-led changes. Her related interests include water sciences & systems, natural resource management, and equitable data & education accessibility. In her personal life, Amy enjoys reading, running for really long periods of time, traditional-American folk dance, asking hard questions, and answering those with even harder questions.
