Amy McCarthy

Amy is the Executive Director of the Teton Rapter Center. Following a childhood in upstate NY and upon graduating from Hobart and William Smith Colleges with a dual major in economics and environmental studies, Amy returned to Wyoming permanently. Amy participated in the inaugural year of Teton Science Schools’ Professional Residency in Environmental Education program and earned a Master’s degree in Forest Resources and Natural Resource Policy from Utah State University. These experiences left her with a substantive foundation for understanding the natural history of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, a deep appreciation for the community of Jackson Hole, a commitment to sustainability and wildness, and a thirst for ongoing discovery. Amy has mixed drinks at Dornan’s Bar in Moose, guided trips in the Tetons and Wind Rivers for Exum Mountain Guides, served as communications and development director for The Murie Center, explored the world of documentary filmmaking, as the associate producer of Don’t Fence Me In (a production of The Equipoise Fund), headed operations for an independent investment advisory firm and endured a season in Antarctica as a recycling specialist.
