Amanda is responsible for the strategic development and management of Encore’s brand story and increasing our presence and impact in the events industry.

Staying active in the industry is a top priority. She currently serves on the Event Industry Council’s APEX Critical Response Task Force and chairs the Event Leaders 100 think tank. Amanda served as the 2018 Chair of the International Board of Directors for Meeting Professionals International (MPI) and was the Vice Chair of Finance in 2016. She started her volunteer leadership path on the St. Louis Board of Directors and co-chaired MPI’s WEC in St Louis in 2011.

Outside the office, she heads off into nature to ski, hike, camp or surf. She enjoys traveling and sailing with her husband, Jon, who loves to plan adventures in the great outdoors.

If you ask her where she cut her teeth, it was at the tech table calling the show on comms with audio visual professionals who make it all happen.
