After her childhood spent in Boston, Amelia (who goes by the nickname, Amy) matriculated at Georgetown University graduating with a BSFS, and then returned to Boston and completed her MLS from Simmons College in 1998. At the beginning of her professional career, she worked in development at independent schools in both Boston and Washington, DC. After the birth of her daughter she turned her attention to her family’s real estate business in Washington DC, managing multiple residential and commercial properties and a 500 room hotel.  She returned to the Boston area, where she was raised, and over the last 23 years has dedicated her time and talents to nonprofits, both community based and private, focusing primarily on children and education.

A lover of books and libraries, Amy spent hours in the Central Library which was her home branch. Amy served as a member of the board of the Brookline Library Foundation from 2004-2019 and as President of same 2007-2011. She currently serves as a board member of Beacon Academy and Chair Emerita as well as on the board of the Bridge Boston Charter School. She is excited and delighted at the opportunity to contribute to her original home library and the City of Boston as a board member of the Boston Public Library Fund.
