All about Amanda
From managing Backpacker Hostels in Dublin and Edinburgh, to operating an artisan market and managing day-to-day operations for a not-for-profit organisation that supports local businesses, Amanda has had a hugely diverse career so far. As if that wasn’t enough, she has recently launched a local community newspaper, The Heatons Post, with a print distribution of 6,000.
Amanda originally studied for a BA in Development Studies at the University of Manchester. She recently returned as a mature student to complete an MA in History.
Amanda loves walks in the Lake District and travelling with her daughter. She’s also half Cornish, which accounts for her love of both the sea and pasties!
