A native of Philadelphia, PA, Amanda has a great love for all forms of artistic expression. The daughter of a music teacher and a director of children’s education, she has always been surrounded by music and children, and has been drawing, singing, ringing, dancing and performing ever since she can remember. She attended Cornell University, studying Fine Art and Psychology, and has continued to study developmental psychology with a particular interest in learning styles and differences/disabilities. She is currently in her 8th season ringing with the Philadelphia Handbell Ensemble (http://www.phillybells.org/), members of the prestigious organization, PennPAT (Pennsylvania Performing Artists on Tour).
After working at a software engineering company for several years (in marketing and customer relations), the birth of her daughter gave Amanda the opportunity to re-evaluate her priorities, and she decided to return to more artistic endeavors. Currently a proud wife and mother, Amanda is a stay-at-home mom and freelance graphic artist, and she couldn’t be more excited about becoming a licensed Kindermusik Educator. She is especially looking forward to sharing her passion for learning and music with the next generation.
