Amanda is a school design coach for a handful of Bronx-based high schools, where she has the opportunity to work alongside school partners interested in building a culture of student-interest driven real world learning.

Prior to her role with BPL, Amanda was a Project Director for HERE to HERE and an Internship Coordinator at DreamYard Preparatory School. She began her career working in workforce development with folks who have had court involvement, first for the NYC Department of Corrections and later for The Osborne Association. Amanda is happy to now get to combine her passion for community-centered work and experience in work-based learning to support a whole network of students and educators.

Amanda graduated with a BA in Sociology from SUNY Geneseo and is a Licensed Social Worker through Adelphi University. When she’s not working, you can typically find her hanging with her toddler, attempting to garden and/or near a body of water.
