Amanda was born and raised in the Portland area. She went to Mt. Hood Community College and received her 2-year degree as a Legal Assistant. Throughout the years, she found her passion for the law and helping people while working at different law firms in downtown Portland, New York City, and Pennsylvania. After moving to Eastern Oregon, she had an opportunity to work for the lending department at a local bank, at which time she advanced her analytical skills and attention to detail. As she explored living in more states around the U.S., she also ventured into other work industries, always focused on her love of helping people. Finally deciding to settle down with her family back in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, she knew she also wanted to get back to doing what she really loved the most, which was working with Attorneys. She happily lives with her husband, son and two dogs (hoping to add another pup to the mix soon) and is thrilled to be working at Thuemmel Uhle & Eder.
