Amanda graduated from Haddam-Killingworth High School in 1997 and became a Preschool teacher for Environmental Sciences Magnet School in Hartford. She earned her masters degree while teaching and taking care of her 3 children, who are now 2, 5, & 8.
She still resides in Higganum and is a long time active member, and former president, of the Juniors Women’s Club of Higganum. She's helped raise money for our town’s needy families, helped supply our local food bank, got scholarships for H-K graduating seniors wanting to go on to college, and many more town projects.
In August of this year, after returning from their annual family and friends camping trip in Maine, she was not feeling well. After a doctor’s appointment she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer. The doctors told her she needed to take the year off from teaching to focus on her health.
We've put this page together to help her family with medical expenses not covered by insurance, and also ease the burden of mortgage payments.
