Chamber Board Members


Amy Sevier, Co-President


I was born and raised on a farm and ranch in Eastern Montana.  My husband (Brady),  two children and I moved to Ronan in March of 2011 to purchase what is now Ronan Body Shop, Towing & Repair.  We have a great respect for the community of Ronan and the Mission Valley.  We are fortunate to live in a very friendly and community minded town.  I have been a chamber board member since 2015 and am currently the President of the Ronan Chamber.  My husband and I recently purchased Carquest Auto Parts of Ronan.  We are excited to have another business that will give back to and support this valley.  I am an advocate for our local businesses and appreciate the opportunities that this community has given to me and my family.

In 2004 we started a local Newspaper the "Valley Journal" and have been running that for the past 14 years. Along that road we have had three beautiful, smart and funny children that bring us such happiness! I love boating on Flathead lake with family and friends. Hunting big game in Montana is also a long standing tradition for me and a group of close friends. Montana is a wonderful state to live in and the beauty of this place never tarnishes. I hope it brings you as much joy as it has me.
