Amy Sings In The Timber came to the Montana Innocence Project with over a dozen years of non-profit leadership experience and more than 20 years of professional commitment to advancing social and racial justice and human rights issues.
As a practicing attorney, Amy directly represented formerly incarcerated, trafficked women to reunite them with their children. Over the past two decades, she has developed and supported access to justice and legal aid programs designed to address disparities in our justice system and promote the rule of law, worked with communities to break down barriers and identify and develop solutions to complex societal and institutional challenges and advocated for a trauma-informed continuum of care, sustainable stable housing models, and economic and educational advancement opportunities for marginalized and disenfranchised peoples.
Before joining the MTIP, Amy served as the Executive Director of the Montana Justice Foundation and in senior leadership roles with The Chicago Bar Foundation and Covenant House Illinois.
Amy received her law degree from the University of Montana School of Law (now Alexander Blewett III School of Law).
