Assistant Vice Chancellor – Enterprise Applications
Inclusion is the foundation and building that environment of inclusion will really help us move the needle.
Amy grew up in Fairview Heights in a family culture where parents worked to get a paycheck. As she got older, Amy started to realize that it did not have to be that way. People can have jobs that they truly enjoy and it was up to her to chart her own course.
Amy enrolled in community college while waiting tables, transferred to SLU, and then landed her dream job at Boeing the summer before graduating. She worked there for 15 years as a developer, analyst, team lead, and IT manager. In 2015 she accepted a role at WashU and now leads the Enterprise Applications team. She attributes working at Boeing for building the foundation of the type of leader she wanted to be. She also learned from a different leadership perspective serving at the Christian Activity Center, an East St. Louis non-profit organization, where she recalls getting the advice to “Always hire people smarter than you.” and empower them to carry out the mission.
