About Amy Jo

Amy Jo Jacobsen joined the CapitalEdge team in 2008 fresh out of college with a desire to pursue a government-related career and serve others. Her interest in the political system was peaked at an early age when campaigning for or tagging along with her mother, a locally elected official.

Amy Jo performs a wide variety of activities on any given day at CapitalEdge, including drafting correspondence, scheduling meetings, researching issues and seeking grant opportunities. Her broad interests in urban affairs and ability to conquer the task immediately at hand serve the firm well.

During her college years, Amy Jo held a number of internships, ranging from a community bank and private law firms to the Consumer Protection Division in the Iowa Attorney General’s Office. She opted to spend her final semester participating in the Capitol Hill Internship Program. The program entailed taking courses and working nearly full-time for a United States Senator, allowing her to gain valuable knowledge of the legislative process and begin learning how Washington operates.

Amy Jo earned a B.A. with Honors from Simpson College with a double major in Political Science and Corporate Communication.
