Amy joined CEA in 2007 to work on strategic planning for foundations and nonprofits. She has helped many of her clients develop business plans for new organizations and new strategic initiatives. Much of her work has focused on sustainable food and agriculture, conservation, and climate change mitigation. Amy spent much of her first year at CEA serving as an Associate for the Sea Change Investment Fund. She also currently serves as Deputy Director for the Global Cool Cities Alliance, a non-profit organization she helped develop and launch.
Prior to joining CEA, Amy helped build Investors’ Circle, a national network of angel and institutional venture investors who use private capital to promote the transition to a sustainable economy by funding early-stage companies with a social and/or environmental mission. Amy had also worked with several mission-driven start-up companies and at the Bay Area Equity Fund, which invests in companies that can deliver market-rate venture capital returns while improving social, environmental, and economic conditions in the San Francisco Bay Area's low- and moderate-income neighborhoods.
Amy has a bachelor’s degree in History (Phi Beta Kappa) from Stanford University and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, where she served as co-chair for the Global Social Venture Competition and was a co-founder of the Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative.
In her free time, Amy enjoys exploring the mountains and rivers in California, and getting around town on her bicycle.
