Hi, I’m Amy and I recently joined the Yoast blog team. Originally from the UK, I now live in Arnhem in the Netherlands. I’m 35 years old. I have a really broad range of academic interests and experiences that build upon my main curiosities: how people work, how the world works, and how those things interact. So while the degree I finally graduated with was in communication, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

As a part of my communication studies, I was lucky to have the opportunity to develop additional skills in webdesign, Content Management Systems, and digital marketing.

I’m really looking forward to developing my SEO expertise at Yoast and helping to spread the word!
