Amy’s Bio

My bread and butter is covering small businesses in the country’s greatest city for innovation, entrepreneurship, and community building. I come prepared with my own pair of Carhartt bibs, every grease stain earned in service to my father’s small excavating company. I also know a fair amount about urban renewal and rural poverty.

I am currently an adjunct professor of journalism at Michigan State University, but I once bled blue as a Knight-Wallace Fellow, class of ’13, at the University of Michigan. I am an alum of Crain’s Detroit Business, CNNMoney, Fortune Small Business, Westword, and USAA, where I helped military families make smarter choices about their money. I also have a background in enterprise and investigative reporting.
