Amy Izen

Program Manager


Early Childhood Initiative


Amy Izen, M.S., CCC-SLP, has a decade of experience working as a bilingual speech-language pathologist at MGH Chelsea. She is committed to providing services that help children reach their communicative potential in the context of their linguistically and culturally diverse families and communities. Amy earned her Bachelor’s degree at Indiana University in 2005 which included a semester of study in Valparíso, Chile, and she earned her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Northeastern University in 2007.

Building on her collaborative leadership experience founding Strong Families Chelsea, and the Community Research Program at MGH Chelsea, Amy is thrilled to serve as the Coordinator for the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems grant, a collaborative effort aiming to increase opportunities for young children in Chelsea to socially, emotionally, and communicatively thrive. As Nelson Mandela said, “There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

Outside of work Amy seeks sunshine while hiking, running, biking, finding new places to explore, and spending time with loved ones.
