Amie joined our team in October 2016.

Amie wants to live in a world where pajamas are considered day wear, rivers flow with good southern sweet tea and books are always buy one get one free.

Upon moving to Spring Hill from Georgia, she discovered her two sons were mature and capable young men that do not need mom at every turn, leaving her free to follow her own path.

As an optician with more than 20 years of experience, Amie has seen almost everything but always appreciates a good challenge.

When Amie is not helping someone to see the world more clearly you can find her with a book in hand pondering life's mysteries.
