Meet Amy

Tell us a little bit about your background. (Where did you grow up? What were you like as a child? Fondest childhood memory?)  

I grew up in North Hill in Akron.

I actually was a fighter as a kid, I ended up suspended many times because I got into fights with girls, mostly over boys.

My fondest childhood memory was my dad taking me fishing. I had my own pink fishing pole & it didn’t matter if I caught a minnow or a big-mouth bass he made me feel like I had the best catch of the day.

Three words to describe you:

Sarcastic, Big-hearted, funny

Favorite Social Media:


What was your first impression of 427 Design?


What do you hope to have accomplished in five years? Ten?

In five years I hope to be still here at 427.

In 10 years, maybe my husband will let me retire so I can be a lady of leisure.

Favorite word?


Least favorite word?


What sound do you love?

Cats purring

What sound do you hate?

Children whining

What is your favorite curse word?


What inspires you, and why?

My daughter.  I have enjoyed watching her grow up & become everything she is, smart, successful & determined to make “herstory”

What is on your “Bucket List”?

Going to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah. I want to volunteer & see all of the amazing things they do for rescue animals in need.

What is something that no one would ever believe to be true about you?

I am deathly afraid of crickets.

What is a major life dream you hope to accomplish?

I just want to travel & see places most people only see in magazines.

Best Advice:

“Do no harm but take no shit”

What’s your guilty pleasure?


Do you have any pet peeves?

Office pen swiping

What turns you on? / What turns you off?

Chivalry is still a big thing for me.

Too much cologne is a huge turn off & big unruly/dirty beards- EW.

What profession, other than your own, would you like to attempt? / What profession would you not like to do?

I would love to be a police officer except I would probably taze everyone so it’s best that I don’t do that.

I would never be a nursing assistant of any kind, I couldn’t clean up poop & puke at all!

If I won a million dollars…..

I would buy a huge piece of land that I could build shelters on for all of the animals I could rescue.

What inspired me to do what I do…

I just wanted to be somewhere that would make me happy.

Something that really baffles me…

How could anyone hurt an animal? How have we not found a cure for cancer with all of the money donated each year towards it? How do people not believe in global warming? Who voted for Trump? The list goes on & on………

If I could have a super power it would be…

I think reading minds would be so handy!!
