About Me

Hey, I’m Amanda. I write all the digital marketing things, but I also write personal essays and poetry. I’m the Copy Team Leader at VitalStorm and a freelance Copywriter and Editor. If I have some spare cash lying around, I’ll use it to go to writing workshops and eight-week courses. I’m starting the application process to get my MFA in Creative Nonfiction.

Here’s some stuff about me that you probably didn’t know:

  • I used to explore abandoned buildings in my spare time before I was like, “Wait, that’s really dangerous.” I called this activity “Industrial Hiking.”
  • I have seven half-siblings.
  • I like to go to the movies by myself.
  • I have an Audible addiction.
  • I have a black dog named Sirius, who is the most loyal of the loyal things.
  • My favorite game to play is Mansions of Madness. Feel free to hit me up even if you’re just tryna play a board game (seriously).

If you wanna get real deep, there are some nuggets of truth over on the Personal Essay Page. If there’s anything else you wanna know, just ask!

You can shoot me an email at mediamandamail@gmail.com or follow me on social media.

“When I asked Amanda whether she would be up to the task ofwriting high quality, long form content for us, she said it would belike a walk in the park. I was very skeptical. The next day I had anarticle that exceeded all my expectations. Since then she’salways delivered, I can’t recommend her highly enough!”

“Amanda is very passionate about her job and everything she does. I aspire to be as passionate and innovative as her. She is always pitching ideas to make the ACT website the best that it can be and her patience and readiness to lend a helping hand motivated me to do the best job I can, especially in regards to the tasks she assigned me.”

— Meraal Hakeem

“A terrific writer/editor with infinite SEO knowledge, her solid background in internet marketing helped direct the copy team toward higher and more ambitious goals. She is an exceptional coordinator, communicator and, most of all, motivator who truly leads by example. Her confounding positivity and good humor (on a daily basis) are traits that simply can’t be taught – and rarely exhibited so consistently by people in management positions.”
