Phelps Stokes, Communications Assistant
Amie is the summer 2012 communications intern assisting with PR, marketing, events planning and the digitalization of Phelps Stokes' archives. She has a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Mary Washington and is currently working on an M.S. in Global and International Education from Drexel University. Her path into this field has been a slow, meandering one or, as she puts it, a "happy accident." Following in friend’s footsteps, Amie went to Scotland to coach lacrosse for what she thought was going to be just a year.
One year turned into three and coaching turned into geography teaching (and traveling a lot!) Upon her return to the U.S., Amie went to work at her old high school where she managed recruitment and admissions for all international students. Like Phelps Stokes, Amie believes that education is the foundation of social and economic progress and it is her goal to continue working with non-profit organizations like Phelps Stokes to provide continual improvement of educational programs around the world.
