Amy works to bring sustainable agricultural practices to scale across the US. Reflecting the large footprint of fertilizer use in commodity crop production on the climate and our waters, EDF’s sustainable agriculture program aims to end fertilizer pollution while recognizing the need for a more resilient, sustainable food system that benefits human and ecosystem health. To achieve this goal, Amy collaborates with large food companies, agribusinesses, grower associations, and farmers themselves. Amy also leads EDF’s efforts to measure the impact of sustainable agriculture practices using the best available science and technologies.


Amy has a B.A. in International Relations from Michigan State University.
