Amanda began her work at Lewis & Clark in July 2012. After 15 years of bartending and 30 total years in the bar, nightclub, and restaurant business she decided a new career was in order so she started studying Landscape Technology at Portland Community College and then transferred to Clackamas Community College. She completed the degree in 2011. As a groundskeeper she maintains and designs areas, helps visitors and staff with their gardening questions, enjoys greeting all the dogs that come to campus, and loves to drive the Facilities tractors. In her off time she loves world travel, cooking, camping, boating, and EDM. She lives in SE Portland with her wife, elderly Jack Russell terrier, and 3 cats.
