Drawing on her background in feature journalism, she serves as the primary content writer for the public relations office. Amanda uses her skills in interviewing, writing, and editing to tell the stories of students, staff, and faculty at SPSCC.
Before joining the PR team at SPSCC, Amanda worked in community journalism, primarily as a features writer for numerous print and digital media outlets. She loves telling stories and has been spinning tales since childhood, so it wasn't a big surprise to anyone when she published her first book in 2011.
Besides writing, Amanda’s other interests are reading, cooking, coffee, travel, and spending time outdoors. Born in a tiny town in southern Illinois coal country and raised throughout the Midwest and the South, Amanda has called Tacoma home since 2014 and loves the dramatic scenery and temperate weather of the Pacific Northwest.
