Amanda Conley Vey:  Balancing Fun, Fitness, and Family
06.13.18 - Arielle Hays
 
Family is very important to Amanda.   We learned her father, once a pilot with PanAm and then United Airlines, has  passed on, but her mother is a very lively and active 84 years young. Flying runs in her family and her sister is also and airline captain. From the pictures she shared it was clear to see she has a special bond with her family members,  especially her younger sister with whom she has had many adventures.
 
She met her husband, who is also a pilot, through a blind date set up by mutual friends. Over the years, they have enjoyed many adventures and vacations together. They share their lives with several fur-babies:   three dogs and multiple chickens. Amanda also enjoys vegetable gardening, canning, and a good beer from time to time.
 
Amanda pursued a career in law and is a practicing attorney in Chehalis. She has participated in several marathon races and triathlons. She enjoys traveling and we got to see several pictures of her most recent trip to Spain with her sister. While there they got private cooking lessons from a chef and learned to make empanadas.
 
Amanda participates in the Gateway Rotary Club on the Vocational Committee.  We are so glad she is also a part of our family at Gateway.
