Heather Rubie

Client Care Specialist

Early Years: Eat, sleep, cheer, repeat.

Heather grew up in Baltimore County with her Mom and younger sister. Heather made the cheerleading team in high school and was chosen as varsity MVP her freshman year. She then attended University of Baltimore and graduated with a Bachelors in Human Services Administration. She later settled in Cantonsville with her husband Mark and their son Tasker Kole. 

What we know about Heather: The grass is greener on the golf course

Though Heather is a huge Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan, her secret love is professional golf. Before she joined us at EBS, Heather worked a summer job as the beverage cart driver for Rolling Road Golf Club for five years. But now that she's rolled in to EBS, we're so happy to have her!

Fun Facts

What's your sun sign? My mom, sister, husband, son and I are all peaceful Libras. 

Get on your bikes and ride! I grew up in a biker family, but I?m the "black sheep" because I am by far the most conservative of us all.

Record scratching: I love music, and I have an extensive collection of vinyl records in a variety of genres.

The Noble and Most Ancient House of Black: We named our two cats Bellatrix and Narcissa as a nod to the two (mostly) villainous Harry Potter characters.

Hope Walker

Client Manager

Early Years:

 

Light up the Stage!

Growing up in Hampden in northern Baltimore, Hope's stage presence became obvious at a young age. She sang with her church choir, school choirs, and in school musicals. She even took home the $50 grand prize during a middle school talent show! Her courage to perform for large audiences drove her to audition and win acceptance into the All-County and All-State Choirs, and she even performed at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. No stage fright here! 

What we know about Hope: 

Hiking her way to EBS

In the summer, we most often find Hope with her Chocolate Lab fur-baby, Kona, playing at the dog park, hiking mountain trails, or swimming at the beach. Hope says, "I am a summer girl, so you'll find me outside in the warm sun, any chance I get." She certainly loves to enjoy the outdoors, but now that she has hiked her way to EBS, Hope's a ray of sunshine for our team as well!

Fun Facts

Hitting it outta the park: I performed at Oriole Park while singing the National Anthem with the Perry Hall High School Chamber Choir. 

This one time, at band camp? I was the Pom Captain for my high school marching band's pom squad, and during practice I was attacked by wild geese. 

Rap it out: I can rap every word to Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back."

The Mad Food Scientist: I will eat soup and crabs all year round - soup even in 100-degree weather, and crabs for Christmas. I also like odd food mixtures such as burnt popcorn and ketchup. (No judgement until you try it!)

Chase Burnett

Client Advisor

Never met a sport he didn't like...

Growing up in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, Chase trained as a three-season athlete for lacrosse, basketball and football at St. Mary's High School in Annapolis. Outside of school, he spent his time surfing in Ocean City or scuba diving on family vacations in the Cayman Islands. Now, whenever he's not at the beach, he's probably out fishing or duck hunting.

What we know about Chase:

The personal is political.

Chase graduated from Flagler College in Florida with a degree in Political Science and International Affairs. He's always been interested in politics and world affairs, and he was even a member of the Political Science Honors Society in school. The only time Chase doesn't pay attention to world news is when he's focusing on other current events: whichever Wizards, Capitals, Orioles or Ravens game is playing on TV.

Fun Facts

He's #1! The city of St. Augustine, Florida voted me its number one salesperson in 2016. 

Frenchies for sale: My family and I breed exotic French Bulldogs.

The force will be with you, always. Anyone who knows my geeky side knows I'm a huge fan of Star Wars!

Amanda Hastings

Client Manager

The Early Years: Never-Ending Summer

Amanda grew up in Syracuse, New York with her little brother, Logan. They're closer than most siblings after spending their entire childhood together, and Amanda considers Logan one of her best friends. Summer is Amanda's favorite season, and the pair would fill their days with sports or swim together at the community pool. But like most older siblings, Amanda soon left for college, ready to pursue her next adventure.

What we know about Amanda: Putting Down Roots

After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in Television-Radio and Digital Marketing, Amanda felt the job market in Upstate New York looked slim. She applied to jobs up and down the East Coast before landing a position in Baltimore. Even though she only had one friend in the area, she packed up, moved, and never looked back. Since then, she's built a network of friends, started a family with her husband, Brandon, and their daughter, Palmer, and joined our team at EBS!

Fun Facts

LAX to the MAX: I played lacrosse for two years in college. 

Tap it out. I took dance lessons from age two until graduating high school, and tap is - by far - my favorite form of dance!

No Standing. Only Dancing. My family and I love music, and we have dance parties in the living room on the reg.
