Amanda Hunter

Amanda is a New Mexico native, but spent time in the Big Apple and Dallas before moving to Austin in the summer of 2017. She is wife to Greg and mom to two little girls. In her previous life, she worked at a big advertising agency on Madison Ave, but now enjoys spending her time exploring Austin with her husband and daughters. She’s unapologetically crafty, believes everything looks better with a monogram, bakes a mean cupcake and can’t say no to a frozen margarita.
