An entrepreneur and inherent organizer, Amy joined FCC in 2018 to support the company’s Investment Team Partners.
Born and raised in Boston’s north shore (nawth shaw), Amy spent much of her youth on a basketball court, track, field, or in the backyard, learning the intricacies of football from her older brother. She attended Northeastern University and split her time between studying psychology and playing basketball, as she earned a spot as a walk-on on the women’s team.
A hard worker by nature, Amy took advantage of the school’s co-op program and worked her way through Northeastern, gaining experience developing programming for young people in traditionally underserved Boston communities.
After graduating, she began her lengthy career at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, leading programs that addressed racial disparities in health and worked to increase diversity in the healthcare workforce. While working at the Brigham, she concurrently attended Boston University and earned her Master’s in Public Health. Turns out she had a knack for this kind of work, and her efforts received multiple national awards and a feature on NBC Nightly News.
Not only did she tackle her work with passion and energy, but she also had a flair for tackling on the field – it turns out those childhood backyard football sessions did not go to waste. For two years, Amy played wide receiver for the New England Storm, of the Women’s Professional Football League.
