Amy started her career in television as a field producer and writer on the political beat in Washington DC and went on to produce an educational video series and PBS television show which aired briefly in the late ‘90s. In the early 2000’s, Amy moved into marketing with a focus on web/print design and served as an advertising agency art director and tourism marketing manager before launching her own boutique design studio where she helped many small businesses build their brands. She has served as the creative side of web development teams designing solutions for industries including small-to-medium businesses, nonprofits, government agencies and healthcare organizations. She holds a BA in Mass Communication from Towson University and a MA in graphic design from Savannah College of Art and Design.
In 2015, everything changed when her son Alex was diagnosed with a craniopharyngioma brain tumor. She co-founded the Raymond A. Wood Foundation in honor of him and puts her marketing and problem solving skills to work for brain tumor survivors and their families. It was the job she never applied for but the one she is most passionate about.
Her spare time is spent with husband Shawn and son Alex, reading, running and enjoying life in Ocean City, MD. She also volunteers for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation as a mentor for other families starting in the brain tumor journey.
