Amanda’s passion for children and public service began at an early age through her extensive involvement in organizations such as the Girl Scouts to touch the lives of others.

At the age of seventeen, Amanda engaged in an immense multicultural project to encourage an understanding of shared heritage. In recreating an adobe in her neighborhood, she singlehandedly raised funds and planned the reconstruction. Her goal was to achieve an experience and appreciation for children that transcended formal education. For this effort, Amanda was awarded the highest award in Girl Scouting, the Gold Award, receiving honorable mentions from former US Presidents, CA Governors, Legislative Entities and community based organizations.

Amanda’s emersion in public service activities extended through her time at California State University, Northridge while pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Child and Adolescent Development. While in undergrad Amanda coordinated and directed a summer camp for underprivileged children and volunteered for organizations such as habitat for humanity, Toys for Tots, Santa Comes to Agoura, and many more.

It was during an internship turned job at CHIME Institute as a special education aide in a full inclusion elementary school class that Amanda’s public service interest focuses specifically towards education advocacy and children’s rights. Working with children with disabilities inspired Amanda to attend law school to advocate on behalf of students with disabilities.

While attending Whittier Law School (WLS), Amanda became a fellow in Whittier’s prestigious Center for Children’s Rights (CCR), participated in specialized curriculum focused on the legal and social needs of children, attended numerous colloquia engaging in pressing considerations of child advocacy, served as director of CCR’s Public Service and Community Outreach committee coordinating many outreach events and participated in WLS’s Pro Bono Special Education Legal Clinic.

Additionally during her time at WLS, Amanda’s Legal Research Paper titled “The Many Children Left Behind the No Child Left Behind Act” was selected for publication and presentation at the Hawaii International Conference on Education in 2012 where Amanda had the opportunity to learn about education systems across the globe and advocate for social change in education.

After graduating with a Juris Doctorate and passing the California State Bar Examination on her first attempt, Amanda joined a small law firm where she advocated on behalf of special education students. Amanda further advocated on behalf of students with special needs during her pro bono clinical work with TACA (Talk about Curing Autism) in 2013 and 2014.

While opening her own special education law practice with her partner Vickie Brett along with their non-profit organization, the Inclusive Education Project, outside the office Amanda coaches children with disabilities within AYSO’s VIP (Very Important Player) soccer team.
