Amy Myrbo LLC helps science faculty move from submitting underdeveloped, rushed grant proposals to leading funded projects with strong Broader Impacts and robust measurement of success. Founder and owner Amy Myrbo draws on 17 years’ experience building the NSF-funded facilities LacCore and CSDCO at the University of Minnesota (UMN), including five years as Director of Outreach, Diversity, and Education. Thriving on shaping fruitful collaborations between diverse people and programs, she knows that making the world a better place with meaningful outreach, inclusion, education, and evaluation is within the reach of every proposal and budget, when we think creatively together and link back to our shared values.

Amy’s unusual combination of a B.A. in English Lit and a Ph.D. in Geology (both from UMN) is ideal for sharpening grant proposals and communicating science. She also has competency in written and spoken Spanish. She is honored to be a member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Diversity and Inclusion Committee and Land Acknowledgment Task Force, and to serve on the Board of the EarthLife Consortium Foundation. She is a Fellow of the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment, and former Chair of the Limnogeology Division of the Geological Society of America (GSA). Amy lives in Minneapolis and volunteers year-round at a horse rescue, wrestling hay bales and picking up poop.
