Amanda grew up in Anchorage, Alaska and developed a love of wild creatures from an early age. She later graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in Zoology. After college she worked at a wildlife rehabilitation center in Seattle, Washington where she gained valuable experience working with raptors, songbirds, and various mammals. Amanda grew up visiting the Tetons every summer with her family and in 2015 she finally moved to Teton Valley, ID and began working for the Animal Adoption Center (a non-profit animal rescue) in Jackson, WY. She is thrilled to be a part of the Teton Raptor Center Education Team and can’t wait to share her love of raptors with the world. During her free time, Amanda can be found exploring the great outdoors or cuddling on the couch with her rescue dog Josie and cat Pumpkin.
