Amanda lives with her husband and two children just outside of Raleigh, NC. Originally from Memphis, TN (Go Tigers!), she moved here in 2006 after graduating from Union University in Jackson, TN. She took a job as a receptionist with a local, private staffing firm in Raleigh, and, after just a few months, moved into a recruitment role and the rest is history. She received her Master’s in Counseling in 2011, which has given her a unique ability to engage her team and her candidates with understanding and care. Her career spans both small, private staffing firms as well as time recruiting with IBM. After taking a few years away to spend time with family, she returned to recruitment when she joined Oakbridge Financial Group in 2022.
When she isn’t talking to candidates about the process of becoming a Financial Advisor, she spends time with her family and friends, traveling (most recently started traveling internationally in 2022 and will never be the same!), and spends time with creative outlets like music, photography and film. In 2023, she set out to further her skills in the industry by earning her NC Life and Health insurance licenses, the SIE certification, and is currently studying for the Series 7. She enjoys educating candidates about the career of a Financial Professional, finding a great match for the firm and seeing candidates begin their careers in wealth management.
