Amanda’s interest in environmentalism and design have guided her through a variety of management and administrative work. She has participated in developing an off-the-grid artist residency in rural California, helped develop best practices and workflows for a small batch jam kitchen in Oakland, CA,  and supported office management at two educational institutions in NYC. She has a strong interest in materials, design, and the built environment. Born and raised in Queens, she couldn’t be happier supporting the office at Hester Street as they engage NYC communities in creating more equitable neighborhoods.
