Amy Connell-Donohue


Personal Background

A native of Lake Forest, Amy returned to the area in 2014 with her husband and 4 children who currently attend Lake Bluff Elementary, Lake Bluff Middle School and Lake Forest High School.

Amy spent 23 years in the Telecommunications Industry, gaining experience with MCI Worldcom, then repositioning herself during the tech boom with a start-up company.  Acquiring expertise in performance and change management, she played a vital role in the growth and successful exit strategy of the company.

After “retiring” as VP of Client Relations, she pursued her love of photography, establishing Amy Connell Photography in 2013.

Amy holds a BA in English from the University of Missouri and a minor in Photography.
