Research Associate and DERS Coordinator
Amy came to NCMPS from CityBridge Foundation, where she helped shape the Foundation’s local DC education investment strategy through best practices research, data tracking and forecasting models. Before that, she worked for the World Bank as part of the research team for the World Development Report 2015: Mind, Society, and Behavior, which examined the ways in which insights from behavioral economics, psychology, and other social sciences can help inform policy work in developing countries.
The groundwork for Amy’s interest in education policy and Montessori was laid in the sixth grade when she (reluctantly) switched from a Montessori school to a traditional school. Amy graduated from Vassar College, where she studied economics and art history.
