Amanda is a writer, ad-libber, and irrepressible curb balancer and stair skipper. She hails from the West Coast and, like Staci, will not stop calling carbonated beverages by their rightful name pop. Amanda believes there is no such thing as “being too old for a color” and that preserving capacity for wonder is essential to happiness. She delights in the power and absurdity of social media. Her three daughters are the center of her universe, which it should be noted, is a place of great chaos, sarcasm, and creativity. And yes, she and Sean are married. It works.
