We are thrilled to announce that Amy McCormick has joined the SkyTruth team as our new Development Director. Amy brings with her a wealth of fundraising experience and grant writing savvy, as well as boundless enthusiasm and a passion for environmental protection.
Amy’s most recent career chapter has been spent in Portland, Oregon, working for the Columbia Land Trust managing foundation relations and the Trust’s annual campaign. Before that, she spent 8 years securing funds for Appalachian Trail Conservancy, based out of their headquarters down the road from SkyTruth in Harpers Ferry, WV. Captivated by the Pacific Northwest, Amy will remain in Portland and work remotely for SkyTruth as a new and integral part of our distributed, international team. Having lived in Shepherdstown for many years, Amy looks forward to work trips back to our tiny town to visit with her friends and family here and in other parts of her native West Virginia.
In addition to overseeing all aspects of our foundation and individual donor relations, Amy will steer our strategic communications, growing our audience and base of support. She holds a Masters in Corporate and Organizational Communications from West Virginia University. When she’s not working, Amy can be found hiking or camping in the East Cascade Mountains or eating and biking her way through Portland’s amazing food scene.
All of us at SkyTruth hope you will join us in giving Amy a hearty welcome as she helps create a strong and vibrant future for our organization.
