DIRECTOR OF PROGRAMS & PARTNERSHIPS
Amanda joined the EnSpice Children's Foundation in early 2018. She attended the College of Coastal Georgia where she obtained her bachelors in Biological Sciences. While living on the coast she was a beach lifeguard, paddle board instructor, and guided night tours to search for sea turtles laying eggs! Although she loves marine life, she also has strong interests for the molecular sciences like biochemistry and genetics.
Amanda's passion for science led her to Columbia University to earn her masters in Human Nutrition. While studying at Columbia, she participated in developmental research measuring vagal activity in preterm infants. She presented this research at the International Society for Developmental Psychobiology's meeting in 2017.
It was her time in grad school where she discovered her excitement for human development, research, and fighting malnutrition. These passions led her to meeting Dr. Murphy and they are now working to take the mission of the EnSpice Children's Foundation across the world.
