Amanda joined Hodges in 2015 after earning her undergraduate degree in mass communications and public relations from Virginia Commonwealth University. Since then, she’s been flexing her media relations, content strategy and social media muscles on accounts like Virginia Distillery Company, Motorcycle Law Group, Hilldrup, Kroger, Virginia Outdoors Foundation (where she once interned) and Swedish Match’s Umgås Magazine. A trained violinist, she sits on the board of Classical Revolution RVA as well as on the board of AMA Richmond as the VP of Collegiate and Community Relations. Her home includes two cats and Nola, a sweet shepherd-lab mix who tries to steer clear of the cats’ bullying. An excellent cook, chances are that Amanda also can mix up your drink of choice without having to look it up.
