Amy was one of the architects of the Dana Center’s work to mobilize a national effort to modernize entry-level college mathematics programs through the Dana Center Mathematics Pathways. She continues to lead a team that supports implementation of mathematics pathways in higher education and also serves as the Program Manager for Launch Years. This major effort seeks to align K-12 and higher education mathematics pathways, create smooth transitions for students, address equity gaps and better prepare students for success.

Before joining the Dana Center, Amy taught mathematics for 20 years in high school and college. As the founding director of the Freshman Mathematics Program at Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, she taught developmental and freshman-level math and led curriculum redesign that resulted in significant improvements in student success in both developmental and college-level math courses. Amy also led initiatives to provide professional learning services to K–12 math educators. She works for the Dana Center remotely from her home in Mancos, CO.
