Director of Admissions, Marketing & Communications

Amanda oversees admissions, marketing, and communications efforts at BISW. 

I dedicated the first half of my career to helping academic leaders from top-tier universities drive higher enrollments and greater student engagement with their online graduate programs. I've worked with the University of Southern California, Southern Methodist University, Simmons University, and, prior to joining BISW, as the Director of Admissions for American University's Kogod School of Business. 

I decided to transition from working in higher education to working in a Pre-K-12 school because I've found that the most transformative education starts at an early age.  I'm very excited to be working onsite at BISW to oversee our marketing and recruitment efforts while ensuring that the parent and student experience is warm and welcoming. I was attracted to BISW because of its authentically diverse staff and students. Despite our intimate school size, our students represent over 70 countries worldwide and go on to attend leading universities around the world. The community here is incredible and very unique to our global environment in Washington, DC.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, trying new recipes, and volunteering as a dog foster with Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.
