Amy's path to Cummins and leading the company’s zero-emissions portfolio was atypical. She graduated from Northwestern University with a bachelor's degree in English and initially thought she would be a journalist. Instead, technology and innovation captured her heart when she was introduced to Cummins and began serving its diverse global customers. In 2004, she completed the Executive Program for Marketing Strategy at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
Amidst her days positioning a startup like New Power for success, Amy is passionate about encouraging and empowering female leaders in the workplace and completed the Women's Director Development Program at Kellogg Executive Education. She and her husband Dan have four children and enjoy spending time on the water boating and water skiing.
