After graduating with a degree in English and minors in Psychology and Sociology, Amy continued her education and went to San Jose State to earn her master’s in journalism.

While pursuing her master's degree, Amy worked for San Jose State athletics. She was the sideline reporter for volleyball and baseball, as well as a producer for any games that streamed live. She also interned at NBC Bay Area where she helped prepare for and then produce their 2018 Winter Olympics show.

In December of 2017, Amy’s family lost their home in the Thomas Fire. At that time, she turned her focus from sports to news. In April of 2018, Amy landed her first news reporting job at KCWY in Casper, Wyoming!

She also covered the North Complex West Fire, then helped victims with their recovery process. During the coronavirus pandemic, she has focused on stories about kids going back to school and youth sports starting up again.

In her free time, Amy enjoys hiking, spending time at the lake, playing sports, and spending time with her dog.

She has a passion for helping people who have also faced natural disasters, but her favorite part of being a reporter is connecting with new people and telling their stories. If you have a story idea you can send her an email or message on Twitter or Facebook!
