Little known fact about Amanda: she wrote the first draft of Brew City’s business plan on the plane ride home from her honeymoon.

Day to day, Amanda manages the Brew City team. She knows firsthand how a fulfilling career can have a powerful impact on a person’s psyche and daily life, so she prioritizes making Brew City as collaborative, comfortable and person-centered as possible.

She’s happiest when actively participating in events that make Milwaukee a great place to work and live.
Amanda’s passion for marketing stems from the simple joy of helping small business owners grow and succeed. She enjoys learning about businesses and what makes them tick. From learning about a particular business’s profit centers to their value propositions, Amanda is invested in helping each and every client be successful.
Amanda holds a BS in Business Administration from UW-Milwaukee and has worked at a variety of Milwaukee companies such as MATA Community Media, AT&T Yellowpages and Aramark.

He knows how to pare down information to what’s most important and keep his presentation moving along!”
