A fun fact about Amy:
A piece of advice:
Amy, who’s from Southern Maryland but who also grew up in a military family and moved often, has lived in North Carolina since she moved here to attend college at NC State. She graduated as a Spanish major and began working as a public school teacher before beginning her work in the Wake Forest community. Now, Amy has worked for Wake Forest for 17 years — nine years at the Graylyn Estate, eight years at the OPCD, and going on five years as a coach. Amy focuses on helping students and graduates with financial literacy and wellness, serves as a liaison to the departments of religion, history, philosophy, communication, and the languages, including the classics, and works with the marketing affinity group within the OPCD. One of Amy’s passions is around liberal arts engagement, so she helped determine what professional competencies students need and would like to have by the time they graduate that they can develop through their liberal arts education. This framework now serves as a key part of the curriculum in the OPCD’s EDU 360 College-to-Career courses to help students build a working e-portfolio and for the OPCD signature event, Anything & Everything, which allows students to unpack their skills and hear from successful liberal arts graduates about the value of their education.
