Amanda graduated from Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts with an associate’s degree in Interior Design. She began her career working in the kitchen design department of a local lumber company. From there, her passion for kitchen and bath design grew. While each of her job experiences have helped shape her design skills and style, she attributes much of her knowledge to the 2-1/2 years that she assisted and trained under Eileen.
Amanda loves meeting new people and having the opportunity to help them create a beautiful and functional space. When she is not working you can find her spending time with her husband and son and serving as a youth leader at their church.
