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.
