Amanda is an Oregon native and has called the Central Oregon area home since 1999. She and her Husband raised two boys(now 22 & 23) and adopted a daughter in 2013 who is now a new 2nd grader at BCA. Amanda graduated from OSU Cascades in 2011 with a degree in Natural Resources and went to work with the botany dept at the local Forest Service office. However, after adopting her daughter she decided being home was the path for her and she started watching a few kids at her own home daycare. While she has love for all things nature, she quickly discovered that her passions also included working with kids and watching their minds grow.
Amanda is excited to have joined the BCA community working in childcare and is looking forward to the fun year ahead. Her Pinterest boards are quickly filling up with science, art, cooking and other ideas to share with the kiddos.
