Having spent 4 years of her childhood in Bend, Amanda is thrilled to be back living and playing in Central Oregon. Drawn to HDFFA even before moving back to Bend, Amanda jumped into volunteering with HDFFA and supporting Central Oregon’s local food system as soon as she could.
Holistic well-being has been a consistent thread in Amanda’s experiences. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Westmont College. Passionate about seeing communities thrive, Amanda believes sustainable, local food systems have the power to transform not only our individual & collective health but also to help heal our planet. Joining the board was an easy decision for her, as HDFFA’s mission aligns so clearly with her own passions.
In her free time, Amanda is an avid reader, loves paddle boarding and skiing in the Cascades, and enjoys learning to garden in Central Oregon’s climate.
