Amanda Bjerke  - Sales Professional

Amanda is the newest addition to the Finstad’s family, joining the team in July 2020. She is a Helena native and grew up with family rooted in the local construction industry. Flooring sales was a natural transition from 13 years of luxury retail sales and managerial experience. Her sense of color and design comes from an artistic background in fine arts, drawing, and painting. A study abroad in Florence, Italy immersed Amanda in art history, interior design, and architecture, which continues to influence her today. She enjoys exploring the beautiful state we call home, camping with her husband and their two French bulldogs with her knitting in tow. Amanda resides with her family in the greater Helena area.
