A SWEET SPOT FOR CULINARY ADVENTURES

Amanda doesn’t just count beans; she knows how to whip them into a scrumptious dessert too! With a culinary degree from the University of Hawaii, she has even helped craft desserts for a restaurant opened by Mick Fleetwood. Layering his favorite flavors of peanut butter, jelly, and chocolate, they created a delicious dessert into the shape of a drum.

CRAFTING MEMORIES WITH FAMILY

Family is the centerpiece of Amanda’s world, with her husband Sean, son Landon, and daughter Ella creating the framework of her heart and home. Whether they’re crafting, cooking, traveling, or exploring the outdoors through golf and bike rides, every moment is a cherished memory in the making. And on game day? You’ll find her, undoubtedly, cheering for the Detroit Lions, a nod to sweet childhood memories and Thanksgivings past.

SWAYING TO THE RHYTHMS OF LIFE

In the background, the upbeat tunes of ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” might just be playing, an anthem that prompts Amanda to find joy and dance through life’s moments, whether they are sprinkled with challenges or sugar-coated in sweetness. Her favorite movie line from Finding Nemo, “just keep swimming”, is not just a quote, but a gentle reminder that through all the shifts, moves, and changes, the journey continues with each forward stroke.
