Born in West Hills, CA, Amanda attended high school in the Los Angeles area and was a recipient of the Lucille Rader Scholarship in 2008. She has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and worked as a mechanical design engineer before becoming a teacher in Catholic schools and, later, a product director at an EdTech company.

Amanda enjoys reading, backpacking, and rock climbing in her spare time.

Why did you agree to serve on the Lucille Rader Education Foundation Board?

I am excited to serve on the board of a foundation that supports deserving young women in their pursuit of a college education. As a woman in engineering, tech, and business, I know how important it is to nurture and support young female leaders – particularly, leaders who are rooted deeply in the Catholic faith.
