Amanda is a Bay Area native who grew up in Marin County before going on to study at Carleton College in Minnesota, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and a minor in Spanish.
While in college, Amanda interned at the office of local Congressman Jared Huffman, helping to coordinate local events and meetings with constituents. She also interned in the consular section of the U.S. Embassy in Madrid to provide passport and visa services while also improving her Spanish-language skills through daily interactions with both Spanish and American citizens living in Spain. It was through these experiences that Amanda developed a passion for politics and government.
