Amanda is a native of Northern Nevada and her first on air job was right here at KOLO back in the late 90's. Many of you may remember her covering the weather and animal/veterinary related stories.....both are subjects that she is crazy about!!!
From Reno she went on to the CBS station in Dallas, the ABC affiliate in Las Vegas, and the CBS station in Sacramento. After years of living away from Reno, she decided to come back to Reno where her family lives.
Amanda is extremely close with her sister Hillary, whom she donated a kidney to back in 1995. Amanda is a strong supporter of organ donor awareness. The other issue close to Amanda's heart is her love for animals and the importance of spaying and neutering our pets. Amanda's favorite things to do in her spare time are hanging out with her family, "trying" to play golf" and cuddling with two black cats, Spooky and Sam and two dogs.
