Director, Client Strategy & Growth

Summary

Hi, I'm Amy. I lead the Education and EdTech practice at Cantina. My background is in educational publishing, where I led the conception, design and development of hundreds of textbooks and digital products, in all discipline areas and for all levels. I strive to create educational experiences that delight users and, most importantly, that improve student outcomes and engagement.

Before joining Cantina, I co-founded Convergent Learning, an education consulting company providing strategic and operational services for K-12 and Higher Education. As a consultant, I worked with the Massachusetts Personalized Learning EdTech (MAPLE) Consortium to author a case study of Andover Public Schools, an exemplar for districts considering a shift from traditional learning models to more student-centered practices. I continue to work with MAPLE and LearnLaunch, where I serve as a business mentor for emerging education technology companies.

At Cantina, I have found inspiration in the innovative and collaborative spirit of my colleagues, and have been particularly motivated by the drive to build experiences that matter. Like me, the people at Cantina want to do meaningful work and have an impact, both at work and in their day-to-day lives.

Other Fun Facts

I am passionate about diversity, inclusion and equity. I love musical theater, as well as indie, documentary and foreign-language films. I played college tennis and still follow the professional tour. I am a Words With Friends phenom.
