Amanda currently lives right down the street from the office in Liberty with her spouse Heuy, her daughter Amara, and her stepdaughter Paige. Outside of working hours, you can often find her traveling, watching her daughter play basketball, cruising with her husband in his 1956 Pontiac Chieftain, and volunteering with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Devi met her husband Greg in the Navy, and they’ve been married for over 30 years. Their son KC recently got married, making their little family bigger and happier. Finally, they have a loveable Beagle named Blueberry as well as two grand-dogs named Lulu Lemon and Melon.
