Amy Whitmore, born of goodly parents, grew up in Marin County, just north of San Francisco. She fell in love with island life, the Book of Mormon, Spanish, and the people of Puerto Rico while serving in the San Juan mission. Amy’s love of the Spanish language came in handy as she opened restaurants and family entertainment centers throughout the country (and when visiting cities like Juarez, Mexico, where a certain karaoke contest practically made her famous with the locals!). Amy took a break from her career after meeting and marrying her “dream man,” becoming an instant mom to three children, and settling in the Pacific North West. Amy and “Dream Man” welcomed two more children together and are now happy to call Denver, Colorado, home. When she’s not building forts with her girls, installing a new toilet, dabbling in real estate, FaceTiming her precious granddaughter, cheering on the Young Women in her ward, or hosting a kitchen dance party, Amy loves to travel with her husband (and sometimes even with the children) to beautiful, island destinations!
