Amy is our Administrative Specialist and she is responsible for many of the details around the office to keep Redstone running smoothly. Our employees and vendors are a key part of our firm and all of those relationships are important to us.  Amy works with those outside of our firm on a weekly basis.

Amy reflects our core values. Here is what Redstone team members say about Amy:

  • “Amy only works here part time, but you would never know it.”
  • “She’s a great asset to the Redstone team. She is able to multi-task and handle administrative items for the firm.”
  • “Amy is a key part of our team – she always has a smile on her face and at the same time is gifted at handling many administrative details.”

Most interesting place she’s visited in South Dakota: Amy has enjoyed visiting a number of South Dakota Indian reservations while on tour with the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra. At the reservations, it was fun to learn about Native American culture, traditions, and food (Native American fry bread is delcious!), and to make music with Native American drumming groups.

Little known fact about Amy: Amy has played the violin since 1989. She has been a member of the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra since 2001 and was lucky enough to meet her husband on a symphony tour to Hoven, SD in 2006. Music is an integral part of Amy’s life.
