Amanda joined the CLAS Dean’s office in February 2012. She is the assistant to Associate Deans Elizabeth Kowalchuk, Ann Cudd and Assistant Dean Erin Spiridigliozzi. She also provides support to the School of the Arts (SOTA) by assisting the Student and Faculty Advisory Boards, processing student travel fund and grant proposals, and planning the ceremony for graduating SOTA students in the spring.

Amanda was born in Houston, but raised in Lawrence (Go Firebirds!). She earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration from Baker University. Before she came to work at KU, she was the reception supervisor for the Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. When not working or attending to the needs of Piper, her devilishly smart shepherd puppy, she spends time with family, friends and plays a touch of rec softball.
