Shortly following graduation, Amanda accepted a permanent position at Page, Cook, & Vaughan, PLLC. She is a current member of the Walters State Paralegal Advisory Board.
Amanda is also very involved with the community as a current production and dance leader at Christ Fellowship where she attends regularly, is a former board member and treasurer of the Ketron Elementary School PTA, and routinely helps at community events. She is a sports enthusiast and can be usually found at the ballfield where her husband coaches softball, attending basketball games, and cheering on the Vols and FSU Seminoles.
Although she enjoys every aspect of the law, Amanda has a particular love for family law as she is both a mom and “bonus” mom in a blended family. Her passion for the law blossomed from her personal journey through what can be a tumultuous time as two families become one cohesive unit.
