She graduated from Irvington High School in 2009. Amanda graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Management with a focus in IT. She started working in healthcare when she was 14 years old at Women’s Health Specialists. She then became part of Washington Hospital’s Epic team and was the youngest person to become certified. She was then recruited by Stanford Healthcare and joined their Epic team. She was excited about her most recent position with Kaiser working with their IT team and supporting their Epic projects. Amanda played and coached girls, fast-pitch softball for both recreation league and tournament teams for Fremont. She loved the girls she coached like family and cared about each of them dearly. She played slow-pitch as an adult and enjoyed her time on the field. She joined Bay Area Derby 4 years ago after a boot camp they held. She was drafted to the Berkeley Resistance and later became part of their travel team. She held many positions with the league over the years. Amanda loved roller derby, her teammates, and B.A.D. She wanted only the best for the league and for her team to win a third straight league championship.
Our goal is to raise enough money to continue this scholarship to last 25 years at least, to honor every year of Amanda’s life. This scholarship will be awarded to a deserving Irvington High School senior that has overcome some type of adversity. No one should be threatened, stalked, or bullied and never to the point of ending their life. Each and every person deserves to be supported and listened to when they are struggling in life. Their voice should be heard.
