As a senior product marketing manager on the Windows marketing team at Microsoft, Amy works in the artificial intelligence space, helping create the future and vision of AI for Windows and Microsoft. 

In May of this year, she was invited to give a keynote presentation for TechTalks hosted by Dell Technologies’ Women’s Entrepreneur Network to educate women-owned small and medium-sized businesses on the latest AI technology and how to leverage it. 

Amy participated in and won the Microsoft Hackathon in 2017, leading the first-ever eSports activation for Special Olympics for Microsoft. Amy's Hackathon earned a financial award and eSports was permanently integrated into Special Olympics with the partnership still thriving today. This is significant, as gaming is one of the few ways for participants to play a game on an equal playing field. This also resulted in Seattle hosting the first-ever Special Olympics eSports tournament in 2018 and a new product launch, the Xbox Adaptive Controller. 

Upon graduation, Amy moved to Seattle in 2014, where she worked with a group of like-minded people to start Seattle Fashion Week – a nonprofit focused on bringing together the fashion community.

In 2019, Amy hosted the first Seattle CMU alumni gathering in over 10 years. She’s also hosted virtual events during the pandemic with CMU alumni in Seattle to stay connected.  In 2022, Amy produced and directed a flash mob fashion show across three iconic locations in Seattle, bringing together more than 100 aspiring and talented fashion professionals.
