Leading engineering teams from 20 to 150 people, she spearheaded mobile and web applications for 100+ companies, from Fortune 500 to start-up. Beyond the corporate world, Amy sits on the Board of Directors at Bold Idea, which connects tech companies with schools to provide hands-on computer programming mentors for students. She also works with her daughter as a founding member of The Turtle Project which raises awareness about sea turtle conservation.

Amy holds a computer engineering degree from the University of Michigan. Her tech journey was sparked by her father, who rose to Senior Systems Analyst at Kellogg's, defying the odds with no college degree in the 1950s. Amy is a sought-after speaker on stages and podcasts where she shares her tech journey and her mission to empower the next generation of women in technology.
