A native of the Mountain West, Amanda has always had a passion for adventure. Prior to joining Alder & Tweed, she spent over 10 years living and working abroad as a member of the U.S. Diplomatic Corp. until her love of design and longing for the mountains brought her back to Utah. Her travels around the world (30 countries and counting!) are often the inspiration and influence for her aesthetic choices. When she’s not working or traveling, Amanda enjoys cooking, skiing, kayaking, and taking advantage of all that Utah has to offer.
