Amanda grew up in Potomac, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C., with frequent visits as a child to visit her father’s family farm in Mapleton, Iowa. After obtaining her undergraduate degrees, Amanda lived in Fairfield and quickly fell in love with the town, resulting in yearly return visits. She practiced law for five years in Maryland, and thereafter Amanda transitioned her law practice to Iowa when she permanently relocated to Fairfield with her family in 2019. When not lawyering, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband and their four fur daughters, hiking the many trails in Fairfield, traveling and road tripping, Bollywood cinema, meditation, and yoga.
