Amy Fox earned an undergraduate degree in Geology from the University of New Hampshire and a Masters and PhD in Geophysics from Stanford University. She started her consulting career in 1998 with GeoMechanics International (GMI) in Palo Alto, California. Between 2004 and 2007 she earned her doctorate, completing a thesis entitled “Characterization and Modeling of In Situ Stress Heterogeneity.”
