In October, the area council and the resident assistants cosponsored an event. OcSoberFest, which was nominated for the Program of the Year. Over the rest of the year, Amy continued to be a valuable asset to the Area Council. At the end of the year, Amy was received the Resident Assistant Liaison of the Year Award.

Multiple Positions in News Department

Q30 News Department at Quinnipiac University

Functioned as Weather Anchor, News Reporter, News Story Writer, Camera and Teleprompter Operator. Interviewed the band 'Hello Goodbye' and Miss Connecticut 2009.


Kathleen Hessman -- News Producer/Anchor, Q30 News (colleague):

"As a Weather Anchor for Q30 News, Amy was someone that rose above and beyond all tasks delivered to her. She has a very warm, engaging personality that any company would be privileged to have working for them. She was expected to write and deliver weather reports under quick deadlines. During the weekly Q30 News meetings Amy would always come in focused and ready to go. On many occasions Amy reported general news stories for our newscasts as well, writing excellent news packages and getting them done on time. Amy picked up on how to use the resources within the news studio very quickly: including ENPS, Final Cut Pro and the CNN Newswire System to write her weekly weather reports. Amy's research skills were top notch: finding the most accurate weather reports from credible weather report websites to be aired on our newscast the next night. Amy also took the time to work not only in front of the camera as the weather anchor but behind the camera on her alternate weeks off. Amy is versatile; she can work several different positions within a news broadcast and accomplish all of her tasks without any additional follow up from myself, our producers and the News Director. I highly recommend Amy for any entry-level position in the Communications industry; she would be a very valuable asset to any company that is interested in hiring her." June 15, 2010

Ben Chalfin -- Camera Operator, Q30 News (colleague): 

"Amy is a VERY hard working individual. She is always will to give a helping hand with a HUGE smile on her face." May 15, 2010
