Amy is originally from Massachusetts, but has now lived in NC for over 20 years. She has recently become a new mom to her beautiful daughter, Saylor Rain, and also has an 18 yr old step son that she & her fiance raise full time. At this point in time, she fills her mornings by "Movin Mamas" walking groups with their babies at the park, story time at the local library, Kindermusik classes and activities that help simulate her toddler's mind. When she finds time for herself, she enjoys traveling with her girlfriends, a tall beautiful glass of wine, a sappy Nicholas Spark book and tossing a ball to her 3 dogs.

She loves the emotions involved with LOVE, kindness, nature, being crafty, warm summer days and campfires on a starry night. Her bucket list includes: skydiving, laying in a villa in the Turks of Caicos, driving a convertible mini Cooper around the streets in Italy & retiring before she's too old to enjoy her freedoms.

Things Amy is not good at: Being mean, cooking and driving slowly

A huge nerd, Jesse can be found in his free time reading comic books or really long boring books about politics and history (when he's not outside enjoying all that WNC has to offer!)
