Investment Administration

By Mike Jung 

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. 

In 2012 – while eight months pregnant with their second child – Amy’s engineer-husband dropped a bombshell – he was offered a job at a highly sought after tech company in Silicon Valley. Too exciting of an opportunity to turn down, the newly-expanded family of four packed up and relocated a few months later. While her husband claims she initially came to the Bay kicking and screaming, Amy and the family adapted quickly to the new coast, planting roots and developing a deep appreciation for all that Bay Area has to offer. 

After settling into life in the South Bay, Amy started a small business, providing lifestyle management services to local realtors and attorneys. In 2018, this led her to the doorstop of Founders Circle, where she began managing the bountiful daily calendars of four Investment Partners, and works every day to “hand them a napkin before they know they are hungry.”

When Amy is not using her organizational skills, you can find her on the sidelines of her kids’ sports games, teaching an indoor cycling class, or admiring the natural beauty of the Bay’s landscape.
