Amanda is a PNW native, growing up in North Idaho and finding a home in Spokane. She obtained a BSBA in International Business from Hawai’i Pacific University, and an MBA from Whitworth University.

Amanda spent five years working in Spokane’s nonprofit industry, where she was first introduced to CISSC and was moved by the dedication and passion show by the CISSC staff. After transitioning to Avista (on contract), there was no doubt in her mind about how to continue to be involved and with which organization. She is passionate about helping Spokane’s kids to not only survive, but thrive.

In her free time, Amanda supports the nonprofit community, travels, kayaks, spends time with family/friends, attends shows and concerts, and appreciates everything that the PNW has to offer.
