Amy is the manager of Deep Time education and outreach, a role that includes developing activities and programs around paleontology and serving on the team that is redesigning the new fossil halls opening in 2019. She works closely with the Museum’s paleontologists and has gone fossil hunting with them in the badlands of North Dakota and Montana.
When not at the Museum, Amy spends most of her time outside building habitats in her backyard, growing some of her own food, hiking, and exploring.
