Amber
Office Manager

Amber

I was born and raised in the Tri-City area.  I decided to have a “grand adventure” and spread my wings so moved to Spokane Washington.  I lived up there for 4 years and then decided it was time to come back home to the Tri-Cities. What the people in Spokane termed the “desert”

In my spare time, I love to read, look for antiques and work outside in the yard.
