For the past 20 years, Dr. Amy has worked fulltime as a researcher and medical writer in both academic and commercial (biotechnology) settings to produce a variety of documents, including grant proposals, peer-reviewed journal articles, white papers, systematic literature reviews, abstracts/posters, and formulary dossiers. As a project leader, Dr. Amy employs a collaborative approach, which involves actively soliciting and incorporating feedback from team members to yield the highest quality product.
At the inception of her career, Dr. Amy worked as a senior research associate at the University of California, San Francisco, in a research group focusing on behavioral health.

For the past 15 years, Dr. Amy has primarily worked for clients in the biotechnology industry on a diverse range of products in various therapeutic areas, including allergy, cardiovascular disease, dermatology, endocrinology, infectious diseases, neurology, psychiatry, oncology, nephrology, pain management, psychiatry, and pulmonology. Dr. Amy eagerly takes on assignments in therapeutic areas that are entirely unfamiliar to her and is able to rapidly “get up to speed” and work effectively in these situations.
In addition to exceptional writing and editing skills, Dr. Amy is able to offer critical strategic advice to SBIR applicants during proposal development to help companies develop a strong value proposition for their proposed product and a methodologically rigorous and feasible research plan. This advice is rooted in Dr. Amy’s extensive experience as a developer/writer of successfully funded SBIR proposals and as a reviewer of SBIR applications for NIH, which furnishes her with valuable insights regarding how reviewers evaluate SBIR applications.
