Amy is a peacemaker by nature, so it’s no surprise she found a career as a conflict resolution practitioner. Conflict is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be destructive. Amy is guided by the belief that conflict can be a good thing; if we view it as an opportunity to make life better.
As a mediator in private practice, Amy has helped individuals resolve disputes with family, employers, landlords, and coworkers. In addition to mediating, Amy teaches graduate conflict analysis at Columbia University. She also teaches undergraduate conflict resolution and mediation at Holyoke Community College in their joint program with Elms College.
In her role as Staff Ombudsperson, Amy brings together her knowledge and experience to promote a conflict responsive workplace at Connecticut College.
Amy holds a master of science in negotiation and conflict resolution from Columbia University, a post-baccalaureate certificate in legal studies from University of Hartford, and a bachelor of arts in communication from Western Connecticut State University.
