More About Me

Amanda grew up in house filled with theatre and music. From a young age, she found joy in both acting and crewing. She has also trained in classical choral music and spent seven years playing trumpet and french horn. Since her freshman year in college, Amanda has happily worked at the UGA Performing Arts Center as a stage hand.

When not around a stage, Amanda loves being active and spending time outdoors. She also enjoys reading, cooking, and writing articles for Athens Science Observer. 

Amanda discovered dance in college and never looked back. She would like to thank the stranger who asked her to swing dance for the first time ever on New Years Eve 2013. Little did she know - that one song led her to a new family with BPG and a lifelong love of dance!
