Born and raised in San Diego, Amanda joins the H2 PR team as Publicist with a craving for all things delicious and newsworthy. After graduating early from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, Amanda returned to her favorite city to venture further into the world of lifestyle and hospitality PR.

Prior to joining H2 PR, Amanda worked as a PR Assistant at J. Walcher Communications where she focused on nonprofit and hospitality clients. There, she secured placements in outlets such as San Diego Magazine and HuffPost. In her current position, Amanda is excited to apply her passion for sharing great stories while crafting public relations strategies for both emerging and leading food and beverage icons.

When she’s not helping clients shine through PR and social media efforts, you can find her exploring music festivals or planning her next big trip. Amanda also loves spending time perfecting her boxing skills, visiting breweries and finding her next favorite restaurant.
