Graduating with a BA in Journalism from Cook College of Rutgers University, Amanda also holds a Masters of Science in Journalism from Boston University College of Communication.
A New Jersey native, Amanda grew up on a small horse farm. Having decided at some point that she had seen enough horse dung to last her a lifetime, she moved up to Boston. She now lives in Cambridge with her husband, Brian, a wine buyer by day and metal musician by night. When Amanda isn’t dazzling others with her killer dance moves, she is talking the paint off the walls and is frequently overheard going on and on about her love of wiener dogs. She also loves karaoke, so if you know what’s best for you, you won’t bring up karaoke.
