Amy Hoyt

Amy is a native of Hampton Roads, Virginia, attended James Madison University, and graduated from Christopher Newport University with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance.

Currently a tax supervisor, she has been an accountant with PBMares, LLP since 2014, specializing in all areas of tax, but specifically enjoys working in the not-for­ profit arena. Before pursuing a career in public accounting, she was a multi­ family property manager and community association manager. Amy worked in most Hampton Roads cities, and also in Harrisonburg, Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina, but finally settled in the James City County, Virginia area.

From an early age, Amy felt the pull of the historical significance of our geographic area. She is a proud third-generation Hampton High School “Crabber” and spent most of her childhood weekends and summers in rural James City County.

Amy fell in love with the natural beauty of the Chickahominy River, James River, and Chesapeake Bay watersheds and their surrounding areas. Her grandfather owned one of the very first Texaco service stations in Hampton, Virginia and served as the Wythe Fire-Chief for many years, and taught her to appreciate the many types of waterfowl and how to be a steward for the land entrusted to our care. After living and working “in the city” for so many years, Amy made it her goal to eventually live in upper James City County in the Forge Road/Toano area. She loves to ride down Forge Road every day and wonder at the many different hues of the agricultural fields during each season. Her connection to the area makes her want to preserve its history and natural beauty.

Amy is married to her husband, Rick, and has a fifteen-year-old, Sadie. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, boating and vacationing at the beach. Amy most recently served on the Finance Committee for Transitions Family Violence Services from 2019-2022.
