Amanda is a wife, mother to a beautiful toddler, teacher and nurse. She loves getting to know people from all walks of life to hear their stories. She rarely meets a stranger.


Her interests include gardening, singing in the Asheville Choral Society, traveling abroad and experiencing God in creation.


The stories of refugees have captured her heart. She volunteered to take the lead of our Producers team because she believes in the power of story.


“I believe that the fear of the unknown paralyzes us as a people. Together we have so many resources and so much potential to affect change. When we look closely, we see that these refugee families are just like ours. They need help to start a new life, away from violence and persecution. When we start to love, the fear stops controlling us.”
