Amanda has a BA in Psychology from St. Bonaventure University and an MA in Sustainable International Development from Brandeis University; the latter of which focused on the design and management of international non-profit programs and organizations. She has worked in corporate and non-profit environments and has found that helping people live better lives has helped her live a better life and is the most important aspect of a job. She enjoys being part of a team and coming up with creative solutions to problems.
Amanda is so happy to be part of Compeer, an organization that supports mental health in such an essential way: through the power of friendship. She is particularly excited to be working with affiliates and learning what they need and how she can support them as they work to support their communities.
