At a young age Amanda was exposed to creating. Having always being interested in art, sewing, and jewelry, she quickly had the desire to get involved in design. In order to reach her goals she spent 3 years learning the craft of sewing, drafting, and fine art. She was under the direct mentorship of Mina Spremulli at Façade Academy, where she continued to specialize in fashion, design and the arts. Mina offered Amanda an opportunity to apprentice with her and instruct within the school, conduct workshops at other educational institutions and coordinate several events around the GTA.

After high school Amanda was accepted to the Ryerson University Fashion Design program. During this 4-year program she continued to excel in her skills and learn industrial techniques. Here Amanda did extremely well and was nominated for the Le Chateau award for her 2nd year eveningwear. In her final year her collection was titled Bibi. This collection enveloped all her skills and interests. Again Le Chateau was interested in her style. Following the showing at Mass Exodus Le Chateau requested an interview with Amanda. Graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Design, Amanda is now working in the jewelry industry. Here she works alongside a team of salespeople and designers to create collections to target certain age groups and trending styles. The company she works for manufactures jewelry for larger companies across Canada and the United States, such as American Eagle, Sears, The Limited, and Urban Behavior.
