About Amy

From a school lunchroom to the cab of a combine and the deck of a ship, my career has introduced me to people with amazing stories to tell. I've lived and worked in Iowa, Massachusetts, Alaska and California and have reported from places as disparate as Argentina, Australia and Panama on everything from a pig coronavirus to tiny penguins to climate change.  My most recent beat was agriculture and agri-business. I've done a lot of science reporting and writing and I'm comfortable recording in the field or studio, taking photos and collaborating on projects of various sizes. I've been developing my data analysis and visualization skills.
