Originally from Missouri, Amanda received her advertising and public relations degree from the University of Arkansas. She then moved to Kansas City where she earned her stripes working for a large bank, helping to coordinate their sponsorship with the Kansas City Chiefs. Amanda returned to the Natural State in 2011, working as an account executive and marketing director for two Little Rock-based companies. At ERI, Amanda coordinates with clients to explore and employ the best means to accomplish their marketing goals through social media, media and public relations. Outside of the office, Amanda works with local nonprofits and recently completed her terms as president of Create Little Rock and Little Rock Regional Network of the Arkansas Alumni Association. She has not, however, completed her term as a hardcore college football fan—Amanda is always ready to give Kirk Herbstreit a piece of her mind.
