Amy Kramer joins the team with a lifelong passion for communications and storytelling, and more than two decades of experience across the diverse media landscape.

For ten years (2007-2017) she led the innovative entertainment efforts of The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, a non-partisan nonprofit.  In this role she spearheaded collaborations with television and online content creators, including MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” franchises — shows which have been credited by experts with dramatically accelerating the decline in teen births.  She managed the staff, budget, and strategic priorities of this work at a time when communications and entertainment were experiencing seismic changes (such as the advent of the iPhone and streaming content, widespread adoption of social media, and the proliferation of online entertainment for young people.) Earlier in her career, as a television producer at CNN, Amy was in the newsroom during the attacks of 9/11 and oversaw CNN’s daily legal show during President Clinton’s impeachment and O.J. Simpson’s civil case.  In 2004, she was on the convention floor as a producer for ABC when then-Senate candidate Barack Obama introduced himself to the country with a keynote speech for the ages.

As a communications consultant with maslansky + partners, Amy worked with foundations, advocacy groups, trade associations, and Fortune 500 companies on language strategy.  She got her start in Washington as a writer and editor at The Hotline, covering the 1992 election cycle.  Her first byline appeared in her Southern California hometown paper when she was in high school. Despite this embarrassment of riches in professional communications, the best job she’s ever had was being a summer camp counselor. Amy is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA, where she got degrees in Government and Journalism.  She lives in Maryland with her husband, and loves dogs.
