Amy is currently in her third year of pursuing a degree in English here at KSU, along
with minors in European Studies and Gender and Women Studies. While she is passionate
about literature and language, her undergraduate education in these fields is intended
to build a strong foundation for a continuing education in history. Amy has completed
courses at the University of Otzenhausen in Saarland, Germany and the European Council,
where she studied the governing functions of the European Union and its subsidiaries.
She spent her free-time abroad volunteering with Syrian refugees and preserving historical
Keltic cites. After spending this time studying throughout Western Europe, she has
become an ardent student of the German language and plans on pursuing a career there
teaching at the collegiate level.
Her most recent research has focused on understanding the sociohistorical
factors of dictatorship, more specifically how and why seemingly “modern” countries
allowed for their rise during the 20th century. When not at school, she works as an
executive assistant at Simmons Engineering Co., and bartends part-time.
