Amanda joined the Walker Methodist team in 2014. With her Bachelor’s Degree in Music and Music Therapy from the University of Dayton in Ohio, Amanda began her career as a Music Therapist. She worked as a Music Therapist and an Executive Director before coming to Walker Methodist.
As Walker Methodist’s Director of Housing, Amanda does her best to ensure the Residents at Care Suites of Edina have what they need to be happy and healthy. She serves as a main point of contact for Residents, families, and staff and leads all areas of the Campus.
With her servant heart, healthcare and senior living was a natural fit. The ability to join Residents, families, and staff on this journey is not something you can learn in school. It’s hands-on, and it’s a labor of love. Amanda’s love for her job is something her coworkers and the Residents can easily see and feel. She’s always looking for creating ways to meet the needs of others and remains focused providing individualized care.
When Amanda is not working she spends time with friends and family. As part of a loving church community, she’s fortunate to have many friends in and around the Twin Cities. Sharing a homemade meal is one of Amanda’s favorite ways to entertain. Cooking for her church’s youth program several times each month is another way Amanda enjoys her time off.
