Dr. Kallmerten has held several roles related to the development and marketing of technical products with a heavy focus on enabling scientists and protecting the resulting intellectual property.

Currently, in the Information Technology organization at Merck & Co, Dr. Kallmerten is part of a number of teams working to drive data-culture initiatives across several functional areas.

Amy concentrates the majority of her her volunteering and community services efforts towards supporting Camp Nellie Huckins, an all-girls camp located in Northern New Hampshire. She’s run a number of road races for various charities including the 2016 Boston Marathon as part of the Dana Farber Marathon Challenge team. She also volunteers as a mentor as part of Year Up Greater Boston.

On a more personal level, Amy enjoys boating on Lake Winnipesaukee as well as hiking and alpine skiing all in her home state of New Hampshire. Her other passions include nutrition and food science, Yoga, the outdoors, painting, gardening, and playing with her animals—a 17-year-old Sheltie named Bella, a 16-year-old Mini-aussie named Bosko and a 14-year-old White-bellied Caique named Willow.
