From a small town in Delaware, Amanda’s spirit of adventure has led her to places near and far. She has a passion for global communities and has been involved in development projects in the US and around the world. Most recently, she served as the first employee of an educational technology start-up in DC seeking to empower the next generation to solve the complex challenges of our planet through science education. Additionally, she serves as Chief Academic Officer for The $100 Solution, an education-focused non-profit which promotes sustainable community development projects using only $100. Amanda is an explorer at heart and has a goal to visit all seven continents (five down and two to go!).
