Amanda joined the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program team in January 2016. She has had a long love affair with all things nutritious and tasty, including incorporating international approaches to food prep into home-style meals. If it is edible and from the plant kingdom she loves it! Her hobbies include hiking, writing about food, shopping for vintage housewares and using them to decorate her 1957 rancher home, and advocating for animals. Her husband Joshua is in the Doctoral Physical Therapy program at USC and they spend their free time catering to their 3 animals: Binky Brunson, Mr. Marshmellow Spot and Elvis the dog.
Amanda's work centers around using the Eating Smart Being Active and Choose Health, Food, Fun and Fitness curriculums to educate under-served families in Lexington County SC.
