Amanda serves as President and CEO of DePaul Community Resources, a social impact organization with over 200 employees across 18 locations in Virginia. Amanda sees beyond current constructs, defies conventional thinking and asks big questions about how we can make our world better. She holds a vision while she creates space for others to imagine it, embrace it, and put their own fingerprints all over it. DePaul’s work is transformational, and Amanda’s focus is on creating innovative solutions to very human problems.
Prior to joining DePaul, Amanda was a small business owner based in Bedford.
