Amanda was born in Shreveport, Louisiana, and has lived in Savannah since 2009. Amanda fell in love with the history and culture of Savannah, while studying at SCAD. Following a long career in vacation rentals on Tybee, she decided to change career paths to becoming a Community Association Manager for Keystone Association Managers.
Dancing has been a passion of Amanda’s since a young age and a healthy way to express herself. Amanda honors a family friend, Mary Beth Lowery, better known as Bethie. Bethie was an incredible person, full of light and optimism, through an extremely long fight with Alzheimer’s. She always had a smile on her face, complimented by a bright yellow blazer that she wore often. Bethie finally found peace with Alzheimer's disease in August of 2013. As requested, her body was donated to LSU Health Shreveport for the advancement of medical student education. The impact of this experience has inspired Amanda to help find a cure and to educate others on early detection. Amanda is passionate about how dance is used within the Alzheimer's community as a form of therapy, bringing people together who often feel isolated and alone.
Amanda is honored to dance for Dancing Stars of Coastal Georgia for The Alzheimer's Association, and for all those who have been impacted by this unfair disease. As you watch her perform, you will see a light inside her as she remembers Bethie. Bethie always put others before herself, and Amanda is asking the same. Please consider donating today in honor of Bethie, and the many loved ones and families that fight Alzheimer's disease.
