During her three years with the program, Amy mixed stories from NPR correspondents, produced host interviews, wrote the occasional obituary, and helped produce NPR shows live from both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Later, as a field producer, Amy produced a series on a multicultural school in Virginia, which won a Radio-Television News Directors Unity Award, for excellence in covering issues of race and ethnicity. Amy traveled to the Democratic Republic of Congo to produce a week-long series on the world’s deadliest conflict. Amy stories have appeared on every major NPR show, including Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Day to Day.

For Morning Edition, Amy reported on the highly controversial, multimillion-dollar contracts between phone companies and states, that provide prison inmates with long distance service.

From South Africa, Amy filed a story for Day to Day about a group of pesky baboons that are plaguing, and dividing, a sleepy village on the coast.
