Amanda received her Bachelor of Science degree in education in 2009. She began her career working in the public school system. Shortly after, she transitioned out of the classroom and hopped into an operational role for a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educational consulting company, which has implemented the creation of STEM labs in schools across the country. After a few years of working remotely from home, Amanda decided to strictly focus on raising their two children, until they were both enrolled in school full-time.
She began her career with JL Smith in 2021, as an aide to her husband, Bryan. During this phase, she had the opportunity to participate in various projects where she gained back-office knowledge to better support her fellow colleagues. Currently, Amanda is focused on ensuring the company and each advisor is up to date with each individual license(s); in addition to various projects that need additional support.
Amanda’s proudest accomplishment, outside of her family, is her passion for writing. In 2018, she published her first children’s book along with other magazine articles, as well as an eBook.
Amanda enjoys spending time outdoors, reading, writing, and traveling with her husband, Bryan, and their two children, Athena and Achilles.
