Amanda graduated from Michigan State University with a B.S. in Media and Information and minors in Computer Science and German. Amanda favorite part of her job is designing websites from start to finish. She loves how layering design elements piece by piece can bring something that starts as a flat design to life. One of her most rewarding projects thus far was working on building the new Web Ascender website, which allowed her to bring together input from our entire team. Outside of work, she enjoys traveling and building her German skills. She’s also a bookworm and you can find her reading her favorites in her spare time like A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry and the Alice series by Phyllis Reynold Naylor. She and her boyfriend Will are also animal lovers, and have a cat named Waddles and a tortoise named Dash.
