Director of Learning and Evaluation
Amy is a believer in the power of learning and evaluation as critical components of social change, and has spent the last 13 years of her career supporting organizations to develop systems, processes and tools to enhance their understanding of effectiveness and impact. A feminist herself, she tries to utilize feminist approaches to monitoring, evaluation and learning, while continuing to learn how to more fully address and unpack power dynamics and the impacts of colonialism and capitalism. Prior to joining Thousand Currents, Amy worked for RefugePoint, Oxfam America and ActionAid, designing and supporting the use of organizational monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) systems, and providing MEL advisory support for local humanitarian leadership and gender justice programs. Additionally, before focusing on MEL, she worked for a number of international development organizations in programmatic roles, overseeing and managing civic and political engagement as well as health and disability projects in countries in the Balkans, East Africa, South Asia and Latin America. In her spare time, you can find her going on adventures with her son or listening to live music.
