Amanda has two decades of experience working with youth and adults to help groups achieve their highest purpose. As a public middle and high school teacher, she used restorative practices to help her students thrive individually and as a community. For many years, she facilitated dialogue at Seeds of Peace International Camp, where she supported young people from conflict regions, including racially and economically diverse American youth and Pakistani, Indian, and Afghan youth. She helps groups work together better, both from an interpersonal approach and a structural level. She also works one-on-one with leaders to support them in thriving personally and professionally. She's passionate about creating a world that works for everyone. Her work draws on Nonviolent Communication, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Family Constellations, mindfulness, Holacracy, Reinventing Organizations, and Critical Oppression Theory and is always learning something new!
