Amanda grew up in Wayne County and has always had a passion for animal welfare. She graduated from John Glenn High School in Westland, MI then went on to pursue her Veterinary Assistant certificate from Ross Medical Education Center. A recent promotion by her husband’s workplace resulted in a relocation from Wayne County to the Grand Rapids area. Being new to the area, Amanda did not know exactly what to expect. The first thing that caught her eye was Animal Medical Center of Wyoming as it is located right next to her new home. She was eager to hop right back into animal medicine and is now part of the team! In her free time, she loves bowling, going to concerts (especially country), watching movies, engaging in outdoor activities, playing both board and card games (competitively), gardening, cooking, traveling, and reading. Amanda enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends as often as possible, and has two cat fur babies, Kailee and Phatty Patty. Amanda is enjoying working the dream as a full time VA and continues to gain new skills every day.
