Amanda Gow is a graduate of the University of Oregon and holds a degree in International Business & Finance.
Amanda began her professional career working as a Futures & Options broker for a firm in Chicago, IL but quickly realized that was not her hearts passion so she left to pursue a career in non-profit management. Non-profit work has always been her passion stemming from an internship during college at a shelter for homeless pregnant & nursing teen mothers.
Amanda has held leadership positions with several non-profits as a professional fundraiser and executive director. Currently she is the Vice President of Development for Guardian Group, a nonprofit working to end domestic human trafficking.
In her free time Amanda enjoys running, backpacking and enjoying all Central Oregon has to offer. She is passionate about building community and providing opportunities and access to all Central Oregonians.
Amanda is thrilled to be part of the HDFFA board because of their mission and vision to support sustainable food resources while championing equitable access across Central Oregon.
