After a twenty year career, Kincey retired as a Vice President of American Management Systems (AMS), a billion dollar information technology and business consulting firm based in Fairfax, Virginia. During her tenure at AMS, she managed large, complex projects that leveraged information technology to achieve strategic business results.
In 2001, she took on a consultant job with Morgan Stanley. On Sept. 11, 2001 she was in her office in the World Trade Center when tragedy struck, but was able to escape down the stairs. Kincey graduated Phi Beta Kappa from William and Mary College and received her Master’s degree from Rutgers University.
Kincey served on the boards of South River Federation, Anne Arundel Watershed Stewards Academy and String of Pearls, and was very involved with the Anne Arundel Chapter of the League of Conservation Voters. She also strongly advocated for a dedicated funding stream to address polluted stormwater. Today, Watershed Protection Restoration Program oversees a budget of $22 million and a staff of 33.
In 2016, she was awarded the Ellen Fraites Wagner Award from the Chesapeake Bay Trust, for those who work tirelessly to restore and protect their local natural resources and engage community members in those efforts. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Bruce Potter.
In accordance with her wishes, there will be no immediate service, but a memorial commemoration will be held at a future time.
