Getting to know Amy:

  • What is your favorite holiday and why?

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving because I love to celebrate with my family and feast on a wonderful, home-cooked meal.  I love the crispness in the air, fall colors, and enjoying the long holiday weekend with my loved ones before we start the winter holiday season and HeimLantz dives into year-end tax planning.

  • What is your personal motto?

My personal motto is to make things better for people.  In high school, college and the professional world I have consistently desired to impact people in a positive way, which is in line with our firm’s core purpose of making lives better.
