Amanda grew up in Michigan and completed her undergraduate degree at Michigan State University. After college, she lived in Philadelphia, PA and Madison, WI before making Chicago her home in 2011, where she attended Roosevelt University to obtain an MBA. She began attending Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre in January of 2017, a few months after the birth of her son, Hudson. It was the perfect place to meet other moms and get back into a fitness routine. Amanda is ACE certified as a general group fitness instructor as well as in Stroller Strides and Stroller Barre. She couldn't be more excited to lead other moms, helping them connect with each other, their kiddos and their bodies.
