When not at work, you can find Amanda...

Either watching one of her three boys at a sporting event or driving them to one of their many activities. In her down time, Amanda enjoys reading books on her iPad.

How Amanda stays on top of what's happening:

Feedly, News Apps, and Social Media (especially LinkedIn) are all tools that I use on a daily basis to keep on top of what is happening in the community and in the research industry.

One of Amanda's favorite quotes:

Never tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon — Unknown
