My name is Amanda, and I am a graduate of East Carolina University in Business Management with a concentration in Small Business and Entrepreneurship. I grew in up Raleigh, North Carolina, lived in Greenville, NC for 6 years while I went to school and worked after college, and now I am back home in Raleigh with my family. I married my high school sweetheart, and we have two “furbabies”, Penny and Dora.
When I was in college I worked part time and ran two small businesses, studied hard to get good grades, and also spent a lot of time volunteering at the Humane Society.
I have always had a passion for music, art, and photography. In fact, my husband and I met through our band class in high school! We continued on to college together, and have been inseparable ever since. We’re both very close to our families, and very loyal to our alma mater (“We bleed Purple and Gold”!).
A few of my favorite things: DIY/crafting, watching The Office, handwritten notes, baking, & thrift shopping.
I have been the staff photographer for the East Carolina University Marching Pirates since 2010, and it’s one of my favorite things about fall. Having been a Marching Pirate while I attended ECU, I have a huge amount of respect and appreciation for the hard work these students put in while working to achieve their higher education degrees. That, and they are the best student group you’ll find on campus.. they know how to work hard and have fun!
