Bee Wuethrich

Senior Director Marketing and Communications at Grameen Foundation

“It has been a pleasure to work with Amanda. She is a quick study: able to deftly turn technical and complex topics into compelling prose, always emphasizing the human dimensions of any problem and its solutions.  Amanda helped to bring Grameen Foundation’s mission to life, especially through telling the stories of individual women who benefited from an array of technical programs and support.”


Sara Atalla

Communications & Marketing Strategist at Porter Novelli

“I hired Amanda to be the lead writer for Global Washington’s monthly e-newsletter. It’s not often you find someone whose background includes both journalism and global health/development, and Amanda was the perfect fit. I appreciated her responsiveness and respect for deadlines, and always trusted that she would represent GlobalWA well when interacting with members and interviewees. It was reassuring to have Amanda on my small team, and I counted on her throughout the year to produce quality content for GlobalWA readers and followers.”


Kristen (Eddings) Tetteh

Product Marketing Manager at Faithlife

“Amanda is an extremely thoughtful writer. Issues of poverty and inequity are complex and Amanda approaches narrative development around these subjects with humility and knowledge. She works hard and cares deeply about getting the story right. I had the pleasure of reading her Global Washington pieces and also experiencing her work as a volunteer for the Washington Global Health Alliance where she routinely did more than she was asked.”


Kimberly Cooperrider Assistant Director, Data Systems at Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation

“Amanda and I worked together at the Institute for Health Metrics & Evaluation where she was a Project Officer and I had the pleasure of being her supervisor. Amanda led a team tasked with producing one of IHME’s capstone global health papers published in the prestigious medical journal, The Lancet. She calmly juggled details and competing priorities, kept her team energized, and still always seemed to have time to help out with other group’s publications. We miss her collaborative spirit and passion for improving global health.”


Tiffany Smith-Fleischman

Managing Editor at Humanosphere

“Amanda wrote assigned stories for Humanosphere on a freelance basis. Amanda has good news sense and is a quick writer, able to turn around well-written stories quickly. She was a strong addition to the Humanosphere team.”

Lilia Cabello Drain

Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Association of Women in Communications Seattle Chapter

“Amanda is a highly skilled communications professional, who develops excellent outreach materials. In my experience working with her, she oversaw the creation and management of the monthly enewsletter for the AWC Seattle chapter. She regularly developed engaging articles, interviewing subjects and accurately retelling their experiences for a broad audience, as well as gathered photos and collateral materials to enhance the story. She welcomed feedback or suggestions and was quick to make needed changes or edits to further develop each piece. Her positive thinking and observant attitude also lent itself well to editing and improving others’ work, including my own, and was a welcome support in collaborating on group projects. I appreciated her honest and direct approach, seeking clarification and understanding for our targeted audience. She was a pleasure to work with.”
