Meet our team

Amy Ryder spends her time in the office helping constituents and listening to their concerns. She believes strongly in the benefit that providing a safe space for constituents to come to can provide. On her lunch breaks, she loves to explore the area around the office, checking out the stores and food that Commercial Drive has to offer. Amy deeply treasures the vibrancy of the different cultures in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and believes that from the Italian bakeries near the office, all the way to Chinatown, the diversity of culture on display is what makes Vancouver-Mount Pleasant so unique. When not working, Amy likes to read and work on getting young people involved in the political process.


For Cantonese and Mandarin service, our office may be able to collaborate with a Chinese-speaking service provider to assist you; please send us an email or leave us a voicemail in English.
