As a graduate of Cornell University’s Charles H. Dyson School, Amy brings to us a wealth of invaluable insights needed to qualify for, and thrive in, any highly respected institution.
Born and raised in Stamford, CT, Amy attended King and Low-Heywood Thomas School, now called the King School. With a strong aptitude for mathematics, she actively participated in the high school’s math team for all four years and served as a teacher’s assistant for freshman and sophomore algebra classes during her junior year.
Amy pursued her undergraduate education at Cornell’s undergraduate business school, earning a BS in Applied Economics and Management with a minor in Communications. While on campus, she channeled her passion for education by co-founding a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the educational achievement gap. Additionally, Amy contributed to the university’s “Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS)” chapter, engaging with local middle and high school students to impart knowledge about campus life and culture.
Her commitment to BBBS extended beyond graduation when she joined the New York City chapter, where she was matched with a high school mentee. Amy continued this mentorship experience until her mentee successfully graduated from the program and high school, eventually earning both an undergraduate and master’s degree from Syracuse University. Throughout this period, Amy not only guided her mentee through the college application process but also played a pivotal role in her personal development, fostering a unique and enduring friendship.
Amy’s professional journey commenced as a financial analyst at a management consulting firm, followed by a position at a global bank. After spending a few years in these corporate environments, coupled with a developing passion for dance, Amy decided to pursue a career in real estate. This choice allowed her to fully embrace her love for both dance and the city that had inspired her passion for the art form. Currently, Amy actively teaches and performs dance throughout the city and shares her passion for real estate and city living through an online brand.
