Amy Connor

Research Associate

Amy Connor of Encinitas, California, joined Connor Associates as a Research Associate in 2015 following a career as the Australia Director of Camp Counselors USA, and Aspect Foundation for Student Exchange in Sydney, Australia. Both organizations encompass international education and student placement. Amy established the Australia program and was responsible for marketing, promotional material development, and the administration of over 600 counselors and hundreds of exchange students from Malaysia, Europe, Japan, and South America.  She served as a counselor to both students and to host families.

She also worked with EF High School Exchange in Santa Barbara, CA,  an international educational company that specializes in language training, educational travel, academic degree programs, and cultural exchanges. In addition, Amy worked with ATS Pacific Australia, a leading inbound travel management company taking care of the needs of international travelers to Australia.  Her customer service work was instrumental to the success of both the client experience and the companies for whom she worked.

Over the past 20 years, Amy has owned a successful photography business in Southern California. She has worked extensively with families, businesses and schools, including Rady's Children's Hospital, National Charity League, YMCA, Advocates for Injured Athletes, Rock the Cure (Juvenile Diabetes Foundation), EA Health, Farmers Insurance, Elephant and Lion Fundraiser, and Morrison & Forester Law Firms, to name a few.  She has also worked with local high schools, both public and private, in the San Diego area.  On the entertainment industry side she has had the privilege of photographing Usher, Al Green, Goo Goo Dolls, Foreigner, Styx, Earth, Wind, & Fire, and Pat Benatar. 

Amy's talents will be put to good use not only as a Research Associate for Connor Associates Strategic Services, LLC, but as a photographer and art director for school admission and fundraising collateral.
