During her time at the University of Alberta, she was a member of the Alberta Law Review and a writer for the Faculty of Law’s ReconciliACTION blog. Driven by a deep commitment to reconciliation and the public good, Amy has a particular interest in advocating for Indigenous clients and communities. 

In her previous work, Amy has advised Ministers, elected officials and senior political staff. Her main focus is the practical impact of her work for her clients.

Outside the Office
