Amanda was born in Nelson and spent her first 5 years living on a farm in the Slocan Valley. From there, her family moved to the Arrow Lakes area and then back to New Denver where she graduated from high school. After many years living overseas she returned to the Kootenays in 2013 and now makes her home in New Denver. She brings many years of community development related experience to the Board through her work in the public, private and non-profit sectors. Amanda is thrilled to be able to support the many excellent organizations whose efforts improve the quality of life in the Slocan Valley.
