A little about Amy

We fondly call her Princess Boss, Bossy or her personal favorite…Queen of Pivot tables (she’s a data nerd) but honestly…she is also super-down-to-earth, lots of fun and really cares about her team and clients. So here’s the professional scoop: As the founder of Hanson Consulting Group, Amy has over 20 years of finance, IT, business operations and management experience. Prior to starting Hanson Consulting in 2009, Amy worked a large part of her career at Microsoft in various management positions in Finance IT, Corporate Accounting, Royalty Operations and Global Outsourcing. During Amy’s tenure at Microsoft, she successfully led technical and business teams to design and develop reporting processes and systems. In addition, Amy has in-depth experience with gaming and software royalties, contract agreements and patent agreements. Prior to Microsoft, Amy was the controller for Fonte Coffee where she managed the financial operations for this multi-state corporation.

Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two amazing children, and their chocolate lab, Winnie.

A little about Ameris

Ameris joined Hanson Consulting in August 2014, with 20 years of finance, marketing and business strategy experience. Prior to HCG she spent time in the technology, online media and medical device industries, where she worked with companies ranging from startups to Fortune 100. Ameris started out in the medical device industry and managed all finance and accounting operations for a custom orthopedics startup, moving on to support the Sales team at Medtronic Vascular. After relocating from the Bay Area to Seattle, Ameris spent time in the Corporate Planning and OEM teams at Microsoft before transitioning to sales and marketing roles. This included time at Google where Ameris was a data and market research guru. There she developed quarterly business reviews and strategy sessions for Enterprise level retailers throughout the Pacific Northwest. She then made the leap to consulting, taking a position at a boutique marketing and consulting firm where she managed online marketing and internal operations. We were introduced to her via several project management jobs, and knew we wanted her for ourselves.

When she's off the clock, Ameris is busy having fun with her husband and three children. She loves to eat and cook so it’s a good thing she’s a CrossFit junkie.

A little about Taryn

Taryn joined Hanson Consulting in September 2016. She comes to us with a background in communications and a Master’s degree in Business Administration along with experience in the e-commerce industry. Previously working for a subsidiary of home improvement industry giant Lowe’s Companies, Inc. she was a go-to player within the organization, taking on ever evolving roles to meet the business needs. Taryn’s areas of expertise include marketing, public relations, process and building teams. Basically we love her because she can take on any challenge with a huge smile and a solid dose of grit!

Away from work, Taryn enjoys travelling with her fiancé and being a mom to their two fur-babies.
