“Kudos to Amanda on the background document from our USAID/Kenya East Africa activity manager—“this background is excellent, easy to read and a great resource document, thank you.” Mwikali Kioko, Director of Field Programs at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for Communication Programs
“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.” Sara Atalla, Porter Novelli
“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.” Kimberly Cooperrider, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation
“Amanda is an excellent communicator that can quickly understand complex scientific material and create well-written pieces for a wide variety of audiences. I’m grateful to have her support as a key contributor on my team.” Marita Stevens Graube, Pixel Theory Inc.
“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.” Lilia Cabello Drain, King County, WA
