Amy Willis is a Consultant Writer specializing in grant proposals, reports, articles and websites. Since 2001, Amy has been engaging clients from across the health care, non-profit and business communities, quickly getting up to speed on their organizations and helping them to articulate their goals through clear, organized writing.

Amy's background is in the field of public policy and health care administration. Amy began her career as a Budget and Policy Analyst for the Massachusetts State Legislature, House Ways and Means Committee, focusing on health and human service issues. After leaving the Legislature, Amy served as Director of Health Programs for the Massachusetts Department of Medical Security (now the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission). In that role, Amy managed affordable health insurance and educational grant programs. Later, Amy served as Provider Contract Manager at Tufts Health Plan, negotiating and crafting payment agreements with hospitals and physicians.

In each of her positions, Amy was required to do a great deal of writing. Fortunately, she enjoyed that part of her work and thrived in it. In fact, in each organization she worked, Amy became the "go-to" person for help with writing. Managers routinely asked Amy to take over the writing projects of others, often under pressure to meet an approaching deadline. Amy was energized by those requests. So, after the birth of her first child, Business Writing and Editing was born as well.

Amy is a member of the Non-Profit Consultants Network, Associated Grant Makers of Massachusetts, Boston Women Communicators, and Women in Health Care Management. She has served on numerous non-profit boards. Amy earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics from Brandeis University, spending one semester in Washington DC on American University's Washington Semester Program in Economic Policy.
