Amanda earned her Associates Degree at a community college while also raising her 4 children and caring for a chronically ill husband. She then had a wonderful opportunity to work directly with the students at the college she graduated from, gaining valuable insight into the many struggles of those "underprepared, low-income, and first generation" college students who were trying to earn their own degrees. Now that she is with NCDE she can put her experience to use as we all strive to help all community college students find success.

When not at the office, Amanda is with her family- the absolute lights of her life.  A lot of their time is spent exploring their new adopted state of NC.  Amanda also engages in various creative outlets - being able to create is vital to her joy and she never tires of learning a new craft.
