Amanda is a recent graduate of Ithaca College’s (IC) Roy H. Park School of Communications, where she earned her degree in Journalism and minored in Italian. During her time at IC, you could see her on the college’s television station, ICTV, reporting on anything from local elections to food security. Throughout her four years, she has reported, anchored, hosted and produced a variety of different news shows for ICTV.
During her senior year, Amanda won a Syracuse Press Club Award for a long-form story she did on a new ADA accessible playground in Ithaca.

Amanda is very humbled and grateful to be telling stories in a place not too far from Ithaca College. She has a passion for meeting new people and giving a voice to the voiceless and is very excited to meet community members.
