About

Hi! I’m Amie. I’m one of the beat reporters covering LSU for The New Orleans Times-Picayune.

I’m a member of several professional organizations including: the Associated Press Sports Editors (APSE), Association of Women in Sports Media (AWSM), Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE), Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and National Sports Media Association (NSMA).

Washington CB David Bruton Jr. decided to hold my umbrella during an interview in August 2016.

I have experience in covering everything from the nitty gritty details of a beat to tangentially related topics like concussions and sexual assault.

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.

I was born and raised on a farm outside of Funk, Nebraska. My love of sports blossomed on the playground of 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.
