As Director of Creative Services, she specializes in graphic design, web development, interactive media design, and video production for RFL and its clients.

She helped define requirements and manage software development projects for the Texas Center for District and School Support. Amy served as the lead developer and programmer for RFL’s Scaffolded Solutions online mentoring application. She has presented at state-level conferences for CEDFA, the Texas Art Education Association, the Texas Dance Education Association, and has presented as a panelist at SXSWedu. She has collaborated on articles promoting client projects in Trends: The Journal of the Texas Art Education Association and Southwest Musician.
