Amanda has “a good grasp on how copy
 should look and feel,” “a positive attitude,” 
and “receives constructive criticism well.
— Senior Editor, Yogapedia.com
For our small team at Edible Nashville, Amanda has been at the top of the list as the most reliable, consistent member of the team ... with attention to detail that is second to none. How she arrives at such great results is also commendable — before starting on a project, Amanda will ask specific, well-considered questions to ascertain all of the inputs from the different people who have touched the project. She then tailors her process to be sure we have the highest probability of getting the end result we all want. Lots of people ask clarifying questions and solicit feedback; but to see it so well-executed is pretty special, in my experience. Finally, when Amanda recommends changes or makes notes/suggestions, she always articulates her reasoning, and notes any alternatives that may exist. Because of this, I feel like I learn a thing or two from her each time we work together. Her demeanor and positive disposition are just the icing on the cake for us at Edible Nashville, and we’re hoping we can keep her around for a long time!
