Amanda has a Bachelor of Broadcasting Communications (Broadcast Journalism). Prior to joining the Mental Health Foundation she worked in a communications role at Youthline and then spent two years exploring the UK and Europe in a bid to cure her travel bug (Note: it didn’t work!).
While abroad Amanda continued building her skills in the not-for-profit sector, working for an organisation which developed programmes for young people experiencing homelessness. Outside of work Amanda is partial to a good book and a glass of vino and enjoys photography and being out on the water.
