Meet Our New Development Director - Amanda!

Amanda graduated from St. Mary’s College of California with a BS in Health Science and went on to receive her Masters in Physical Therapy from Samuel Merritt College. She began her career as an inpatient rehab therapist at John Muir Hospital working with adults with neurological and orthopedic injuries and diseases. After a move to Seattle, she worked on the inpatient rehabilitation unit at Seattle Children’s hospital, specializing in patients with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, brain tumors, and traumatic injuries. After leaving active practice, she has spent the last nearly 2 decades working in various non-profit environments and has extensive knowledge around fundraising, event planning, and development. She is extremely excited to be at Pushing Boundaries where she gets marry her passion for working with this community and her love of development, events, and fundraising. When not at work, she is usually found in her garage woodshop, indulging her hobby as an amateur woodworker, in the bleachers cheering on one of her sons on the baseball field, or just enjoying time with her family.

Tom joined the Board in 2019 as a supporter of the community through his company Able Environments.
