Amy’s responsibilities include marketing and communications for our five counties. Amy designs marketing and promotional materials and updates the website and social medial accounts. She also produces the Extension in Action newsletter and the annual Impact Report. Amy also manages the financial records for the SNAP-Ed program. Additionally, she provides program support to colleagues and works closely with community partners in Schuyler and Pike Counties.
