Associate Director of Transfer Admissions
Amy joined Wilkes University’s admissions staff in 2002 and now works with students who attended college elsewhere before finding a home at Wilkes. She enjoys learning about each transfer student’s individual path and often recommends that students perform informational interviews or, even better, job shadowing so that students can explore their desired career well before they graduate. In 2007, Amy graduated from Wilkes with her Master of Business Administration degree with an emphasis in business statistics.
She completed a chemistry degree at King’s College and then worked at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, D.C. She tired of city life and moved to Hawaii to teach science to ninth and tenth graders and explore Hawaii’s beautiful beaches and coral reefs. Returning to northeastern Pennsylvania, she discovered that a career in admissions allowed her to work with young people on a more individual basis.
When not “playing” in Microsoft Excel, Amy can be found hiking, camping, traveling, making mandala art, or writing to one of her 24 pen pals from around the world.
