She believes that providers and patients need to form a partnership to work together on healthcare goals. She also speaks Spanish to help aid in providing care to the Spanish speaking population.

In her free time Amanda enjoys spending time with her amazing husband, daughter and son. They certainly keep her busy! She also loves cuddling with her dogs and cats and watching her fish.
