Hi! I’m Amie. I’m a sports reporter who is currently available for hire. That baby? That’s me when I was a kid. Being a reporter was my destiny from the very beginning.
I was born and raised on a farm outside of Funk, Nebraska, and grew to love sports on the playground at Axtell Community School. I’m a proud graduate of Lincoln Southeast High School, though admit I spent three years figuring things out at Lincoln East High School.
My most recent job was as one of the beat reporters covering LSU for The New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Before NOLA, I was the Missoulian’s Griz football beat reporter and preps reporter. While in college as a news and information major at the University of Kansas, I interned at The Washington Post, worked as a stringer for The Associated Press, served as a Chiefs correspondent and stringer for The Topeka Capital-Journal and held various positions at The University Daily Kansan, including sports editor, special sections editor, columnist, photographer and beat reporter.
