Summary: As an only child growing up, Amie developed quite an imagination by always having to find creative ways to have fun. From building LEGO houses to Play Dough sculptures, it was clear from a young age she was meant to be a designer. Amie loves to utilize her creativity by thinking outside the box and offering one-of-a-kind solutions.
Experience: As a recent graduate, Amie made her debut here at Silent Rivers in 2017 and is eager to introduce a fresh perspective. She spends each day collaborating with the design team and developing preliminary ideas into unique designs that the clients love. Although she has learned valuable lessons through her education and past internships, she’s excited to hone her skills by working with the experienced staff here at Silent Rivers.
I was new to the city and didn’t have a clue where I wanted to go after college. That’s when I discovered Silent Rivers. Now, here I am. We design with a unique approach here and I like that. Henry Ford once said, 'If I had asked them what they wanted, they would have said a faster horse.' I think all of us here think like Henry.”
