Amanda has worked in the not for profit sector on PEI for many years. She has also run a Kindermusik business here, in Charlottetown, for several years. She is at her best working with children and families (especially when it involves singing and dancing!).
Amanda and her family live close to the club in Parkdale, and she thinks it's pretty great to be making a difference for families so close to home.
"I'm most excited to work with such a fantastic team and be a part of our Club kids' lives. It's so exciting to witness children grow and learn. It really is food for the soul."
