Amanda focuses on client relations at Imagine, where her work fuels an innate passion for helping small businesses succeed. She grew up aware of the challenges faced by business owners, as her family owned and operated a small used car dealership in the Dallas metro area for over thirty years. Amanda made Las Vegas her home after completing graduate school at UNLV, where she earned a Master of Fine Arts degree. She says the program was excellent training in creative problem solving.
Amanda’s professional background includes managing art and design projects (both her own and those of other creatives), working as the art editor at a literary magazine, and art handling and gallery preparation at the Las Vegas Guggenheim Hermitage Museum. She has worked as an instructor of visual art, graphic design, and communications courses at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, The Art Institute of Las Vegas, and Nevada State College. Amanda currently volunteers on the board of directors of Las Vegas AIGA, a professional organization for design.
