She works closely with our staff to model, support, and reinforce the mindsets and behaviors that demonstrate WECC’s mission, vision, and values.
Amanda believes strongly in WECC’s vision of "a world consuming energy responsibly for the economic and environmental benefit of all." She feels connected to WECC’s mission as she believes we all must do our part to preserve the environment for the many future generations to come.

Amanda earned both her Master of Accountancy and Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin—Madison, where she was a proud member of the school’s first-ever softball team. Amanda enjoys traveling and holds an affinity for beautiful outdoor spaces like the National Parks, where she finds the most solitude. Amanda also enjoys participating in UW—Madison’s numerous athletic events, where she is a member of the National W Club and occasionally serves as an announcer and scoreboard operator. When not working or traveling, Amanda likes spending time with her family and her very calm Tibetan terrier, who helps teach her what life is about: walks, naps, and snacks!
