Amy Hanks

Assistant Account Executive

Amy Hanks is a St. Louis native who made a home in Kansas City as a 2019 Crossroads summer intern before joining the team full-time as an Assistant Account Executive.

With a degree in public relations from the University of Missouri (M-I-Z!), Amy prioritizes building strong relationships and the written word. She started her undergrad program in broadcast journalism, interning for a local NBC station. However, several months later of learning about public relations from the media side, Amy fell in love with the industry and dove in head first on exciting projects.

In her short time as a PR professional, her most memorable moment in the industry was presenting a creative campaign in front of more than 200 agency employees, the client and the agency’s executive leadership team. She was the youngest in her intern class of 53 and the only public relations intern on her team — no pressure or anything. After that presentation, Amy realized her greatest passion was crafting and sharing stories with the world.

When she’s not in the office, Amy can be found scoping out the best BBQ joints in KC, taking Polaroid pictures downtown, or playing with her puppy, Cooper.

Amy’s favorite place in the world is Portland, Maine, because of its beautiful lighthouses and strong coffee! She hopes to someday get a Polaroid picture of every lighthouse on the Northeast coast.
