Hi, I'm Amy
WHERE I COME FROM
I have lived in Plumas County for about 22 years. I moved to Quincy from Texas. My maiden name is Tewksbury and some may remember my dad and stepmom Bob and Rosemary Tewksbury. They are the reason my sister Kathy and I moved to Plumas County and have made it our home.
A THRIVING CAREER
I am currently the Chief Appraiser at the Plumas County Assessor’s Office. I have worked my way through the ranks to get to where I am today. When I first moved to Quincy I got a job working at Plumas Bank in the Loan Processing Department. I was instantly intrigued with the real estate loan process and wanted to know more. I was able to take two real estate classes through Feather River College. It was then that a position came open at the Assessor’s Office that I applied for as I knew that it was what I wanted to do for a living. Over the past 21 years I have worked my way from an Appraisal Assistant, Appraiser I, Appraiser II, Appraiser III, and finally to where I am now as the Chief Appraiser. It has been a long and wonderful road and I am proud to say that I still love my job.
Looking to the Future
I’m looking to help lead Plumas County forward as the next elected Assessor. So much has changed in the last five years; destructive fires, a pandemic, another uptick in the market. We need to rebuild, be prepared for future events that may happen, be more competitive with our wages, and attract new business. I want to help us get there by continuing to work on the county’s general plan and by being involved in new and exciting projects.
I love opening our residential and commercial files. Each one has a unique history and an enduring future. The architecture and design, the variety of materials used to build, the neighborhoods, and the real estate market trends that shape our county, state and country all come together to show the story of each parcel. Growing up in Pasadena, I had a daily dose of diverse neighborhoods and their architectural appeal. People build and buy with their dreams in mind. It’s personal and driven most often by their heart. When looking at commercial properties it is evident that people hope to see the American dream of success and entrepreneurial independence come true. This is why I do what I do. It fills me with happiness even on the hard days.
