Amy is a native of the Pacific Northwest. She grew up in Central Washington and moved to the Portland Area in her early 20s. She has called Portland home for over 20 years.
She worked in the construction engineering industry for 22 years as a drafter, designer, and project coordinator. She also performed residential energy analyses for Puget Power in the early 1990s.
She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from Portland State University in Portland, Oregon in 2004.
She purchased her first home at age 19 and has been an advocate of home ownership ever since. She wanted to consider a career as a real estate professional but worried the commission-only pay would not enable her to provide for her family while her children were young. When her last son moved away to attend college, she entered the real estate profession full-time in 2009. Before that she has purchased and sold homes for investment purposes.
Amy’s primary interest is real estate but she also has several hobbies she’s enjoys when she isn’t working for her clients. She loves to sew, quilt, paint, garden, play her cello, listen to jazz and classical music, and hike the open spaces of the Portland Metropolitan Area with her husband.
She loves Portland, Oregon and thinks its remarkable landscape and dramatic weather foster a unique creativity that personifies Portland’s interesting character. She lived in California where she began her real estate career while her husband was on temporary transfer with his job and discovered she missed Portland terribly.
She is happy to be back for good and looks forward to sharing her enthusiasm for the area with her clients.
