As Vice President of Communications, Amy Hagovsky leads NPCA’s media and outreach efforts including earned media, social media and online advocacy.

Amy joined the organization in 2014, following a two-week national park road trip. It was then that she saw her first bear in the wild and fell in love with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Her passions have guided her career, which has spanned the public, private and non-profit sectors. Amy served as Press Secretary for U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski, Communications Director at Discovery Channel, and most recently as Communications Director at The Pew Charitable Trusts.

Amy earned her Bachelor’s Degree from St. Bonaventure University’s Russell J. Jandoli School of Journalism and Mass Communication. She is an avid SCUBA diver and has spent many hours underwater swimming with sharks. Above ground, she can be found running the many beautiful trails of Maryland and DC.
