Amanda
I'm a first-time mom to Evan, born in November 2013, a devoted wife to Jeremy, a ruggedly handsome forensic structural engineer, and I've called the Tampa Bay area home for over 10 years. I'm a graduate of the University of Tampa with a political science degree and while my professional career was in law, my current role as a stay-at-home mom (aka “domestic engineer”) is the most rewarding work of my life. I currently reside with my family in Valrico, along with a few century old oak trees and a menagerie of miniature critters. I'd love to hear from you, so follow my adventures on Facebook.
