Amy believes in the potential for all young people to achieve and has worked with young people from many different backgrounds. She enjoys taking learners out of the classroom to engage with their local environment where possible, while also educating them about science with a global perspective.
In her spare time Amy enjoys rowing, running, reading, swimming, cooking and eating!
