Amanda practices out of the firm’s Chattanooga office. She graduated cum laude and a Highlander Scholar with a  Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice in 2015. She then earned her Juris Doctorate from Appalachian School of Law in 2019. While in law school, Amanda was awarded the faculty scholarship based on her academic achievements and served as both an associate editor and senior notes and comments editor on the law journal. After graduating from law school, Amanda was a law clerk with Justice Law Office in Grundy, Virginia and served as a Virginia Magistrate before obtaining her license to practice law in Tennessee.

Amanda knew she wanted to be involved in the practice of law as she grew up, because she looked up to a family friend who was an attorney. She is the first in her family to attend both college and law school. She was taught from a young age the importance of hard work, honesty, and providing help to those in need and uses that in her daily practice.

In her spare time, Amanda enjoys adventures with her mixed breed dog, Maggie that she adopted from a shelter in her first year of law school. She also enjoys visiting her hometown in Virginia to spend time with her large family.
