Amee earned her BA in History from Barnard College of Columbia University.

She also spent three years volunteering as a rape crisis counselor and advocate in an emergency department in NYC and over a year in East Africa on various sexual and reproductive health projects.
Amee is currently earning her Masters in Public Health at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC, anticipated graduation in 2017. Her interests involve sexual health and rights; she is especially interested in how people’s experiences with stigma and discrimination impact their access to healthcare. In her free time, Amee enjoys cooking and baking, tea, hiking, and trying to read her height in books each year.
