Amanda brings several years of experience supporting students in their education and career goals. Most recently she had the honor of working with young people in Seattle who had left high school, assisting them in re-engaging in their education and continuing on through post-secondary education or employment. She also served as a mentor for a non-profit youth program in Seattle that focused on building community through social justice work, and believes all work with youth should be centered with a social justice lens.
Building strong, supportive relationships is the centerpiece of her work, and she believes strongly in the power of our young people and likes to find ways to connect and engage them in being leaders in our communities. Amanda received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Psychology and Social Welfare and holds a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Washington in Seattle.
