Amanda was in my Theta family and added so much fun and laughter to our little family! We were also float chairs together. It breaks my heart to hear that she is no longer with us because she was such a joy to be around. She was always one to volunteer to stay late into the night and work with us until everything got done on our float! And she was by far the most talented decorator/creative person we had on our float team that year! She was loved by the chapter and her sisters and her spirit will be missed.

One of my favorite memories of Amanda was our NYC trip in 2010. She had the cutest red stiletto pumps that she was bound and determined to wear. Johnny and I gave some sweet suggestions to the girls that the cobblestone streets and long blocks might be difficult to navigate. However, Amanda and Faith were willing to make the sacrifice for great style. By day three of the trip, they chunked the love of great fashion for pairs of Nike's! Amanda was always a fashionista!
