As a Gainesville native and University of Florida graduate, Amy began her career in science conducting fish surveys throughout the Southeastern United States for the U.S. Geological Survey. She quickly realized that while she loves science, her real passion is imparting her enthusiasm for science and nature to others, and fulfilled this passion as an environmental educator both domestically and internationally. Amy returned to her hometown in 2011 to work as the Florida Museum’s Volunteer Coordinator.
