Introducing Our New AmeriCorps Volunteer

Amanda Walker

By Amanda Walker

My name is Amanda Walker. I am the new AmeriCorps, PNA Village Volunteer Coordinator. In this position I will be reaching out to you with opportunities for helping with on-going Village programs and events. Additionally I will be developing a new Fall Prevention program to be presented in the winter and spring.

Since moving to Seattle from Fort Lauderdale two years ago, I have been working in various administrative roles, most recently at our local PBS station, KCTS 9, as a receptionist and office assistant. I attained my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Florida State University in 2011, and I am now pursuing my Master of Public Administration degree at Seattle University.

During my time as an undergraduate, I was a member of the national service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. Leadership, Friendship, and Service are the core principals of APO, and it has been my goal to continue to live and work by these principals. This is my first AmeriCorps position and I look forward to learning as much as possible and serving in this role.

In my spare time, I enjoy volunteering at the Jet City Improv Theater and enjoying the arts of Seattle with my boyfriend, Jimmy Avery, an MBA student at Seattle Pacific University. On many days you’ll find us walking around Green Lake and enjoying the local cuisine.

I look forward to serving in my community. If you have any questions or concerns I can be reached at amandaw@phinneycenter.org or 206.789.1217.
