After graduating from Imperial College London with a degree in Engineering, following a career in television and video in Asia, New York and California, Amanda stepped into motherhood with both feet. She quickly became involved in her childrens Waldorf school in San Francisco and as one of the pioneer families at Golden Bridges School she fell in love with Waldorf education.
Amanda watched her children develop a deep passion for school-life, a strong connection to their teachers and a reverence for their learning. Knowing they had picked the right path for their future schooling and beyond, she and her family moved to Santa Cruz in 2017 so that her boys could attend the Santa Cruz Waldorf School.
Amanda loves to be involved in school life, often chaperoning overnight field trips, day hikes and surf days at the beach. As a parent she feels that not only do her children benefit from the wisdom of Waldorf, but she does, as well. The focus on identifying one’s gifts and future contributions to the world resonates particularly with Amanda and ties in closely to her philosophies as a yoga teacher.
Amanda stepped into the position of Enrollment Coordinator in the fall of 2019 and thoroughly enjoys sharing her love for Waldorf Education with prospective parents.
