Amanda came to AERC in 2019 with copious amounts of veterinary experience, having worked as a veterinary technician for twelve years at emergency hospitals in Hawaii and North Carolina! She grew up on a farm in northern Minnesota, but life has taken her far and wide; she loves road trips, adventuring, and exploring new places – especially camping and hiking in National Parks.

Amanda has two dogs of her own: Linda Renee, a pit bull, and Riley Eugene, a border collie mix.
