What Others Say
About Me

“Amy is a quick study and able to get to the heart of an issue. She has worked on multiple issues for Spitfire, using her stellar storytelling skills to make each issue compelling and memorable. We always welcome the chance to have her amongst our brain trust as she enhances our communication efforts in smart and effective ways.”
Kristen Grimm, Founder and Strategist, Spitfire Strategies

“Amy has contributed extensively to the work at UNHCR’s Innovation Service. She continually brings a unique and strategic approach to telling stories about the complex issues related to our work – from humanitarian innovation to climate displacement and organizational change. She always gracefully manages the editorial process of creating a story from the initial seed of concept to managing a chaotic calendar and interview schedule for our colleagues and turning a diverse group of perspectives and ideas into a communication piece that is accessible and impactful. We’re grateful to have her as a reliable and creative member of our extended team.”
Lauren Parater, Creative Strategy Lead, United Nations Global Pulse; former Innovation Officer (Strategic Communications), UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency

“Amy has worked on numerous writing projects for me and has always turned in a top-notch product. She is extremely professional, an excellent writer, very thorough in her approach to the work/research and always a pleasure to work with. She has become one of my main ‘go-to’ writers for just about any type of writing project. I know when I assign something to Amy it will be well executed — without fail.”
Lillian Lorenzi, Director of Marketing and Communications, ACCESS

“Amy is such a perceptive writer, editor, and interviewer that I regularly get spontaneous rave reviews from colleagues who have interacted with her. She brings commitment and empathy to all of her projects AND has a rare gift for following up, following through, and keeping projects on track. I cannot recommend her highly enough! She’s one of my favorite people to work with, and you’d be lucky to do the same.”
Elizabeth Neal, Accessibility Strategist, OCLC; former Director of Communications, American Foundation for the Blind

“Amy is one of the smartest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. She’s a strategic communicator and talented writer. After giving her an overview of our Obama for America-Michigan digital content strategy, she took it and ran with it — telling a compelling and passionate story of the President’s local staff, supporters and volunteers.”
Sara Cederberg, Progressive digital fundraiser, strategist and storyteller for political campaigns and causes, Senior Consultant, Fresh Eyes Digital

“Amy is the kind of writer you want to turn to if you want high-quality work delivered to you on time and in a friendly way. Amy is an excellent writer and is skilled at taking complex health information and determining which parts of it will be relevant to the average healthcare consumer/patient, how to write and organize it in an understandable and logical format, and most critically, how to make sure that it is still evidence-based and medically-sound. On top of that, Amy is very reliable, organized, and dependable, providing updates throughout long-term projects and never missing a deadline. Amy’s work is solid, and I highly recommend working with her!”
Beccah Rothschild, Principal, Health Engagement Strategies
