Amanda grew up in the Nantahala Gorge in Swain County. She and her husband, Henry, have two sons attending MDCS, Christian & Christopher. Amanda calls them her “little blessings.” She was a stay-at-home for five years before working at MDCS. Amanda also works part-time at The River’s End at the NOC. When she is not at MDCS, Amanda spends her days with her family. They enjoy attending church, 4-H, picnics, or just sitting at home together. Amanda is grateful to be able to spend her evenings at MDCS and absolutely loves being a part of so many children’s lives.
