Amy's always had an appetite for adventure. Growing up in Seattle, she was always exploring the great outdoors whether hiking, swimming or skiing but she found a particular thrill in traveling. During a visit to NYC with her Mom at age 10, she decided that was where she wanted to live. At age 18, she left her home in the Pacific Northwest behind for the great unknown in the Boogie Down Bronx. Four years later, Amy received her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Fordham University. During the last final of her college career, Amy received a phone call from CNN offering a job opportunity of a lifetime (at least to a 21 year old during the financial crisis) working in television ad sales at Manhattan's Time Warner Center. When a job opportunity in Los Angeles opened up a few years later, Amy couldn't say no to a new adventure back on the west coast. But Seattle eventually called her back home and Amy returned in to pursue a Master's degree in Business Administration with the hopes of learning the skills she needed to feed her entrepreneurial spirit. Before graduating, Amy co-founded Paxson Fay with Tessa Andrews in 2015. Amy focuses on writing and content development including branded content, social media, and video.

Tessa graduated from Fordham University in New York. During her time at Fordham, she worked for an interior designer, as well as at NBC News. She graduated with a dual major of Communications and Political Science, and then managed marketing at 3form, a pioneer in the sustainable building products industry, where she combined her love for design with her expertise in marketing. She is a self-professed nomad, having travelled the world over and back again. She moved to South Africa in 2014, where she traded business knowledge for artisan craft skills, and almost died rafting the Zambezi. It was around that time she decided the gypsy life was beginning to be a bit much and found her home right here in Seattle, where she joined forces with Amy to start Paxson Fay. In addition to travel, Tessa loves old fashioneds, any pasta you can think of, skiing, politics, Stevie Nicks, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Shirley Chisholm, Gloria Steinham and any other bad ass female who inspires her to get shit done.
