Amy is a born-and-raised Texan and has lived in nine different cities across the state. She began her studies in ancient history and archaeology, which led to a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas and Master of Arts in Classics from Texas Tech. After many years of working with material culture, she developed a passion for arts, history, and museums, specifically in how art defines culture and museums communicate meaning. Her career goal is to advocate for the relationships between museums and art nonprofits and their communities. She received her Master of Arts in Museum Studies from Baylor and is thrilled to be working with The Arts Council. During her downtime, Amy enjoys reading, cookie decorating, trying new restaurants, teaching her dog new tricks, and traveling.
