Amy Russell
Associate Director of Admissions, Bay Area MBA

Amy joined the Graduate School of Management (GSM) at the University of California, Davis in August 2010. She is currently Associate Director of Admissions, with a primary focus on recruitment for the UC Davis Part-time MBA in the Bay Area.

She is an Aggie through and through, and loves working with prospective students to help them join this tight-knit community.  Amy graduated from UC Davis a decade ago with a BA in History.  She went to another UC for her MA in Education.  She spent five years in Seattle as the Director of Outreach for a national nonprofit before returning to campus.  After a couple years recruiting UC Davis MBAs and seeing the fantastic experience students had in the classroom and opportunities they created, she decided to join the program as well.  She is currently a second-year Part-time Bay Area candidate.

Amy grew up in San Francisco, and has strong roots in the Bay Area.  She also competed 13 years in track and field, including at the collegiate and Master’s level.  She is currently retired from the sport, but is known to sprint towards Gunrock sightings in hopes of getting a photo opp with the school mascot
