Amy graduated from the University of Murdoch with a Bachelor of Communications majoring in Journalism and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Philosophy.
She began her career as a print journalist at Examiner Newspapers, where she spent four years covering the news in Perth’s south eastern suburbs. In addition to covering the news, she worked as the paper’s feature writer and sub-editor. She has also worked as a reporter in the resources sector.
Amy later joined the office of WA Senator Linda Reynolds as a media advisor, assisting with various campaigns over two years, including the push to introduce a Modern Slavery Act in Australia, addressing the problems facing young people in nursing homes and promoting WA’s shipbuilding capabilities. Projects such as these saw her working closely with organisations like Andrew Forrest’s Minderoo Foundation, Hagar Australia, the Cambodian Children’s Trust and the Salvation Army.
Amy has also worked in State politics in the office of Alyssa Hayden, the former member for Darling Range, supporting her shadow portfolios such as communities, volunteering, youth, seniors, small business and tourism. During this time, she helped Mrs Hayden call attention to the need for local infrastructure investment and support for local businesses impacted by COVID-19.
When not at work, she’s most often found in the kitchen attempting something new, hanging out with her two dogs, or making Simpsons memes.
