As PR and Digital Communications Director, Amy is a seasoned social media, media relations and communications strategist, with an emphasis on the lifestyle, education and technology sectors. A professional ‘story-teller’ since 2006, Amy began her career in front of the camera as a reporter and anchor, with her pieces running on CNN, The Today Show and Good Morning America.

In her spare time, Amy enjoys traveling, snapping pictures of her two puppy-sons, Poco Loco and Comrades, hiking local trails, or enjoying one of Bend’s many eateries with her husband, Ian.
