Awesome Associates: Amy Hunter (Orlando, FL)

Meet our Awesome Associate Amy Hunter, a GIS Manager in our Orlando, Florida office. She loves providing GIS solutions to help our team and clients make better decisions and be more efficient.

Hi Amy! Tell us a little bit about where you’re from and where you went to school:

I am originally from a small Texas town but have been a Floridian for over 20 years. I attended the University of Central Florida in Orlando.

What drew you to the GIS profession?

I started out as an Environmental Consultant and had to analyze spatial data that was gathered in the field. Over time, I became much more interested in the power of GIS and less so in saving tortoises (who are surprisingly ungrateful). The ability to provide GIS solutions to help people to make better decisions and be more efficient is what I love the most about this profession.

What types of projects have you worked on?

I have been fortunate enough to have had a career in which I have been exposed to a wide variety of projects. Types of projects I have worked on include environmental, bridge coatings, underwater engineering, airports, emergency response, census, transportation, utility, planning, parking, facility, and survey/SUE.

What’s your get-pumped song?

It varies, but currently “Revolutionary” or “Global Concepts” by Robert DeLong.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Spending time with my family and friends mostly, but also cycling, kayaking, going to Disney, binging TV, crafting, and reading.

Have you read any good books lately?

Yes, “Sharp Objects” by Gillian Flynn.

What does your ideal vacation look like?

I enjoy road trips and would love to go cross-country and see all the quintessential tourist stuff like Mount Rushmore and maybe the world’s largest ball of yarn.

What was your first job?

I was a cashier at Publix.

Who or what inspires you?

Nature. The beauty of all that exists, the power of natural phenomenons, and the resiliency of the planet.

Everyone at WGI has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?

A friend who works at WGI knows the value of GIS and asked that I speak to the transportation group about how they could benefit from using GIS in their business. I wasn’t looking for a job at the time, but after learning more about WGI, I was sold on taking a position as the GIS Manager.

Thanks for spending some time with us, Amy!
