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.”
