Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, Amy is SACE’s Communications Director. She joined SACE in May 2020 and coordinates with the communications, policy, and program teams to most effectively convey SACE’s mission to the public, the organization’s members, media, policy leaders, and stakeholders. 

A graduate of Wake Forest University, Amy’s career has spanned leadership roles in nonprofit communications, public relations, marketing, and journalism. Prior to joining SACE, Amy was a strategist and senior copywriter with a digital marketing firm, spent several years as a Communications Director with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and worked in traditional media as both a reporter and editor.
