Amy brings over 20 years of experience in river restoration, advocacy, and capacity building to her work. She enjoys working and learning on rivers because of how rivers connect our human and ecological communities and the ways in which rivers require us to think across disciplines if we want to achieve our goals. Amy works in a shared position for American Rivers and The Nature Conservancy to advance river restoration and dam removal through both implementation and policy. Nationally those efforts focus on opportunities to reform permit processes, coordinate and develop training resources, and improve the practice of dam removal. In New England, Amy works closely with state and NGO partners to identify, develop, and manage dam removal projects. Amy also presents regularly at conferences to inspire and train partners on the good work to restore rivers both here in the US and internationally.
