Amelia Hetfield

Emerging Leaders Advisory Council

Amelia Hetfield has always been an active participant in the political process. As a young girl, she participated in campaign activities and volunteered for conservative candidates. Her interest in politics culminated in earning her Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Government from Bryan College in Dayton, TN. However, Amelia saw the potential to change the world through the free market, and started her career in the private sector.

Most recently, she completed her Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, at the James A. Graaskamp Center for Real Estate. After receiving her MBA, Amelia joined SARA Investment Real Estate as a Development Associate, where she is responsible for conducting financial and strategic analysis for commercial property acquisitions and real estate developments.

Before joining SARA in 2016, she worked for Prologis, where she created disposition plans and modeled the ongoing portfolio analysis for a significant merger. Prior to Prologis, Amelia was on the corporate real estate team for J.CREW in New York, with a focus on market research and financial analysis.

Amelia has always maintained her interest in politics and passion for conservative principles as well as the free market. She continues to be involved in her local Young Republicans chapter, as well as local, state, and national elections. She is also an active member of ICSC, WREAA, and CAR, enjoys horseback riding, watching baseball, and reading, as well as traveling with her husband, Zachary, and playing fetch with her rescue dog, Tucker.
