Amanda grew up in Roswell, Georgia and attended Centennial High School. During her freshman year, Amanda met a deaf student and the student’s interpreter in their band class and knew that American Sign Language Interpreting would be her passion and the career she would pursue.
Amanda attended Valdosta State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in interpreting in May, 2009. During her senior year internship at Valdosta State, Amanda had the opportunity to interpret VSU’s production of Footloose and discovered her love of interpreting theatre. Amanda lived in South Georgia for six years after graduation from VSU. While in South Georgia she was employed as an interpreter for Colquitt County Schools as well as doing some community interpreting. In 2015 she decided to move back to the Atlanta area to be closer to her family. She continues to enjoy educational interpreting and is glad she gets to work with a great team of interpreters.
Amanda enjoys being with friends and spending time with her family and especially her five year old Maltese, Zoey. She attends Birmingham United Methodist Church where she plays hand bells and sings in the choir. Since moving to Woodstock, Amanda has participated in at least eight 5k races and hopes to do more in 2017.
She looks forward to working with the Board!
