Amelia graduated from Lewis & Clark College with a double major that allowed her to focus her interest in using computers to handle large biological datasets. As an undergraduate, Amelia had the opportunity to study venom biology in Australia, research genetic algorithms for her thesis, and test an R package for a model of evolution during her Research Experience for Undergraduates program.

vPrior to joining the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Population Management Center in 2023, Amelia worked in wildlife research. Projects included managing large databases of motion-triggered camera photos, maintaining proximity-triggered animal-spraying systems, and training her dog to sniff out deceased birds and bats as part of an effort to monitor the impacts of energy infrastructure on wildlife. Today, Amelia manages the day-to-day operations of PMCTrack, a database/survey software designed to help with the population management of AZA Animal Programs.
