A thirty-something-year-old with a lot to say, Amanda’s background in journalism and advertising fuels her love for storytelling. A typical Gemini, she is a study in contrasts. A tomboy who also loves to sparkle. She’s introspective but outspoken, greeting the world with a bold lip (preferably pink) and a pair of Nike’s, always. Amanda is inspired and driven by travel, wellness, sports, fashion, and culture – and brands with purpose that are creating and connecting communities. Enter Healthy is Hot, and one of the many reasons she's so thrilled to be part of this movement.

A former entertainment journalist, Amanda put the pen down and left Toronto seven years ago to build a successful advertising career on the beautiful East Coast of Canada. Now, she’s back in Toronto with her one-eyed Boston Terrier sidekick and an appetite for big change and big challenges. By day, she's the marketing manager and head of the content studio for a finance firm. By night, she’s learning to love the written word again.

Follow along her journey of rediscovery as she tries to find balance in the big city. You can keep up with her here of course, or on InstagramTwitter, or her website.
