Amanda was so impacted by the presence of dance and musical theatre as a child, that she knew it was something she wanted to continue as an adult.
Originally from Coquitlam BC, Amanda has had the opportunity to perform with numerous companies around British Columbia, including Victoria Operatic Society and Theatre Under the Stars. She also had the rewarding experience of getting to perform in the Vancouver 2010 Opening Ceremonies.
Amanda holds a BA and BEd from Simon Fraser University, as well as her BC Professional Teaching Certificate. Her educational philosophy encourages incorporation of the arts while teaching – as she has witnessed first-hand the positive influence of arts exposure to students.
