Amy Harclerode
Interim Chief Executive Officer & Chief Development Officer

Amy joined HMI as its first Chief Development Officer in 2017. Since then, revenue for the organization has continued to grow to support youth programming and advocacy and capacity building. In 2019, the Development Department successfully launched the HMI 360 campaign to support the growth of technology offerings at HMI, the continued expansion of the Institute for Advocacy and Capacity Building, and the build out of an onsite health suite for LGBTQIA+ youth. Under Amy’s direction, HMI’s Annual Women Speak event, which celebrates the diversity of all women that HMI embraces and the men who support them, has doubled in size and continues to grow.

Amy came to HMI from the Wildlife Conservation Society, where she led corporate and institutional engagement for global conservation.

Currently, Amy is the Development Chair of the Gorilla Rehabilitation and Conservation Education Center. She has served on the Boards of the Picture House Regional Film Center, Greater Tucson Leadership, Tucson Young Professionals, and the Tucson Federal Credit Union.

Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Amy has a Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education with a focus in Biology from the University of Tennessee at Martin where she was a scholarship athlete for the Division I UT Women’s Softball Team. She has a Masters in Strategic Marketing and Communications from Fordham University and lives in Mount Vernon, NY with her wife and dog, Piper.
