Amy Keach is a Senior Project Manager in ITS Enterprise Applications at Yale University, where she manages projects focused on alumni and donor data management and outreach for the Office of Development and the Yale Alumni Association (YAA). Her projects at Yale have included redesigning and migrating online donation pages to a new platform, redesigning the YAA website, and migrating the Yale Alumni Academy travel website to a new vendor platform.

In addition to her daily responsibilities at Yale, Amy is also a member of Yale’s Project Management Community of Practice Steering Committee. In this role she teaches the course Project Management for Yale Professionals, develops live webinars on using new technologies for project management (such as MS Teams), and partners with the Yale recruitment team on seminars such as Becoming a Project Manager (for professionals interested in joining the project management ranks). She is also an active mentor through Yale’s Working Women’s Network and a member of the Community, Culture, and Inclusion Task Force Steering Committee.

After getting her start as a member of the Prodigy launch team for The Providence Journal-Bulletin, Amy moved on to book publishing, where she managed websites for Simon & Schuster and The Globe Pequot Press. In 1999 she started her agency career and spent almost 20 years in that space, managing global website development for clients such as General Motors, and end:end site reconfigurations for clients such as SeaWorld, before joining Yale in 2017.

Amy has been an active volunteer for her sorority (Phi Sigma Sigma) on a national level, including a three-year term on the board of directors. In that role she worked with the board to transition the organization from its traditional siloed structure to a generalist board, and afterwards she moved to the Phi Sigma Sigma Foundation board, where she was director of programming. Amy served on the board of Naugatuck Youth Soccer as an age director, vice president, and president, and is currently the secretary of the South Central District of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association.

A certified project manager through the Project Management Institute since 2003, Amy holds a dual BA in Journalism and English from Rutgers University, where she is a mentor for both the Rutgers Business School and the School of Communication and information. She also holds an Executive MBA from the University of New Haven, where she is co-chair of the Women’s Leadership Council and teaches Project Management 101 in The NonProfit Institute.
