Amal Sedky Winter

Amal Sedky-Winter is a bi-cultural, bilingual, Egyptian American woman with a foot in both worlds. Her life experience and her training and work as a psychologist enable her to compare them from both inside and outside.

Her professional experience includes being a clinical psychologist in private practice, a court appointed evaluator, mediator and special master, and a professor in three graduate programs that she helped establish—the last being at the American University in Cairo to which she bi-located from Seattle for years.

Spurred by her lifetime of activism in support of human rights, Amal has run for political office and served on a variety of boards, including Psychologist for Social Responsibility (PsySR), the Santa Clara County American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and as an elected trustee of the West Valley-Mission Community College in California.

Amal lived in the San Francisco Bay Area before she moved to Seattle, where she currently resides, to be near one of her two daughters.
