amy-lowe-gmo-honorAmy Moran Lowe graduated from Harvard University in 2004. Following graduation, she taught English to middle school students in Chile as part of the WorldTeach Program. Valuing the experience in developing countries, Amy wished to learn more about the complex issues affecting communities at home. This desire brought her to the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, where she focused on domestic social policy, including education, immigration, and urban policy issues. She now works at the U.S. Government Accountability Office as a senior analyst in the Education, Workforce, and Income Security Group. Her focus has been on education issues ranging from early childhood education to college affordability. In 2014, Amy was awarded the GAO Community Service Award for her work mentoring college and graduate students, as well as teaching ESL to adult immigrants at the Salem Community Development Center.
