Today is 10/7/22 (since the dates are messed up on the website.)
Happy Friday everyone!
My name is Amanda Potter. I am the oldest of 6 kids, named alphabetically, as well as a 5th generation native of Grand Junction, CO. I am a veteran of the US Army, where I served as a Military Police and Corrections Officer at Fort Carson, CO and met my husband. I am married to a wonderful man and we will celebrate 20 years in January. We have 2 great kids, a daughter and a son. Our daughter graduated in May and is off on a 9 month missions trip to 4 countries. Our son is a Junior and a part of the schools Trap and Skeet team. I earned my Masters degree in Community Counseling and worked as a substitute teacher, a secretary and then a counselor in our local school district. My favorite was working with kids at the alternative school and our local youth detention center. I taught firearms courses for years and now I am teaching real estate, I definitely have a heart for teaching! I am a real estate broker licensed in 2 states with brokerages in Grand Junction, CO and Dallas, TX. I volunteer with local conservation chapters; I was a CASA Advocate and I was a board member for our local Hospice program. I will be finishing up my term as Chair of our local REALTOR® association in November. I love scuba diving, hunting (rifle and bow), fishing (mostly off shore), growing micro-greens and making homemade bread and kombucha. I have great admin skills and love spreadsheets! My favorite drinks are an Old Fashion or a good Whisky or Scotch neat; I especially like the Islays. I always enjoy being the student and constantly learning as well as teaching and helping others; I am looking forward to the community here!
