After a restless decade spent writing, video editing, dancing to Sisters of Mercy and playing video games for days, Amanda has finally settled comfortably into her role as nerdy mom and copywriter for Quicken Loans.

If you wanna chat about the military, Star Trek or the band Clutch – she’s your gal.
